Jack Horkheimer Passes Away at 72

A week ago today one of my life's inspirations passed away.

I looked to Jack every week for years to have an idea of what gifts, surprises and awe (real awe) inspiring sights were in store each night.

Jack was smart, funny; a card.

He taught me a lot and did it with humor and excitement. He will be missed. In fact, those at the Miami Planetarium are still trying to figure out what to do without him.

He wrote his own epitaph: " 'Keep Looking Up' was my life's admonition; I can do little else in my present position."
