Sir Patrick Moore was an amateur astronomer, who presented his show The Sky at Night virtually since the inception of the BBC.
Basically, whenever something unusual happened in the sky, he was on TV covering it. Sometimes not even on his own show - he'd randomly wander into news reports. The solar eclipse, comets, shit running into Jupiter, you name it, he was on TV somewhere talking about it. Inbetween those events he would discuss the latest astronomy news every month or so on his aforementioned show.
He is known for being a little eccentric - wearing a monacle and speaking in the poshest, most incomprehensible accent known to mankind - and for being incredibly passionate and excitable about space exploration. He's spoken to and hosted on his show virtually every major astronomer that has lived during his time.
And his remains should definitely be put into space. I can't think of anybody who'd love it more.
This video isn't from his show, but I found it nice because A) that cockney dude explains how he was brought up with Moore, like most of the country, and B) it shows a few videos from the past. And we get to see inside his house.
