Tribute to Sir Patrick Moore who died today.

This video is a Tribute to the British astronomer and broadcaster Sir Patrick Moore who died today aged 89. His TV programme The Sky At Night was a great inspiration to me and I believe he would have liked the theory explained in the rest of this video. Sir Patrick presented the BBC programme The Sky At Night for over 40 years, making him the longest-running host of the same television show ever. He wrote dozens of books on astronomy and his research was used by the US and the Russians in their space programmes. His detailed maps of the Moon were used in the Apollo Moon landing.

  1. Is it me? Or is Bilbo Baggins here, just talking Bollocks, as he randomly
    flicks the pages of Holly’s (from Red Dawf) Book “The Junior Encyclopedia
    of Space.” You know the one with all the pictures in!

    • +Toy Pupanbai Yes! He actually made the moon maps that were used for the
      landings!!!

  2. Aren’t you also postulating an infinite universe? For an infinite amount of
    reference frames would require that. Would it not.

  3. your painting ? now must know . enjoy art it very mathematical and
    scientific including historical. nice tribute to Sir Patrick Moore while
    Voyager 1 is with in the magnetic highway of charged particles from our
    solar bubble , nearing interstellar space . hoping Moore’s spark of life
    energy continues with his curiosity of the skies . all the best to Ptolemy

  4. Yes that is right! What I call an infinity of possibilities!

  5. Sir Patrick had a profound influence on my perspective on life, the
    universe and everything. He taught me the definition of the word, scale. A
    life well lived and sadly missed. Life long Sky At Night viewer.

  6. No I think I might have missed that! LOL This is anartist theory on the
    physics of light & time Based on: 1 Is that the quantum wave particle
    function Ψ or probability function represents the forward passage of time
    itself photon by photon continuous creation a continuously renewing
    process! 2 Is that HUP ∆×∆p×≥h/4π that is formed by the w-function is the
    same uncertainty we have with any future event within our own ref-frame
    that we can interact with turning the possible into the actual!

  7. Thanks! The idea of parallel universes is very interesting and Hugh Everett
    was ahead of his time, but only in a mathematical way. In this theory these
    extra dimensions or universes are just future possibilities and
    opportunities in our one three dimensional Universe of continuous creation.
    We are at the centre of our own ref-frame as an interactive part of this
    process turning the possible into the actual!

  8. He was a great man and made the Moon maps that were used for the Apollo
    landing craft! He was the longest running presenter of any TV program he
    must have been presenting the Sky at Night for over fifty years!

  9. I disagree it was the greatest achievements in the history of Man!
