Keep Looking Up Jack and RIP

Posted by Dan Satterfield

Jack Horkheimer. Exec. Director of the Miami Space Transit Museum. He died Friday.

His signature sign-off was “KEEP LOOKING UP!”

Jack Horkheimer was the star of the PBS series Star Gazer and taught millions to look up at the night sky in wonder. He was a grand ambassador for science. He died on Friday, and the astronomy world is the poorer for it.

There are astronomers to be who will have gotten the star bug from Jack Horkheimer.
He leaves a great legacy.
