Patrick Moore

Send Patrick Moore's ashes into space

(Long may he live, of course), but maybe organise a UK whip-round?

50p each equals about £30M - surely enough to send up the dear old fellow's ashes up into the dark, and to be there travelling out, for ever-more

       Yes, & it would perhaps be in poor taste to ask him if he wanted that - almost like the whole country willing him off... Wouldn't want that...   

       --   

       FACTOID - get this - Patrick Moore, in his lifetime, has interviewed Neil Armstrong... *AND* <deep breath>...   

       The Wright Brothers.   

       (he mentioned in BBC interview with, ISTR, Sue Lawley(?) about 10 yrs ago)

       First, a bone for not specifying which Patrick Moore is referred to. Second, another bone for making me think the great astronomer/newsman had died. Third, a bone for not letting the man choose his own resting place. Fourth, another bone for no invention.

       hat-trick...   

       //FACTOID - get this - Patrick Moore, in his lifetime, has interviewed Neil Armstrong... *AND* <deep breath>...   

       The Wright Brothers //

FACT: Wilbur Wright died in 1912, and Patrick Moore was born in 1923, so this seems unlikely.

       //On the first occasion, at a small gathering, I met no less a person than Orville Wright, the very first man to go aloft in a heavier-than-air machine. His brother Wilbur had died in 1912, which was rather before my time. Orville Wright did very little flying after 1920, and, as he told me, he was saddened to see aircraft used in warfare. He was quiet, unassuming - I liked him immensely, and I regret that I met him only once. Presumably there are now no people who can remember that epic flight from Kitty Hawk, a century ago.// apparent quote from P Moore.

       Ha, [copro] doesn't believe in séances.

       You made me think he was dead too.   

       Couldn't we make a xylophone out of his phalanges instead?   

       (Joke)

Send who up?
Me or Patrick Moore?

       I don't know this idea didn't work well for James Doohan. (link)
