The science writer Nigel Calder has died, aged 82, after a short illness.
[update] Jo Calder has left a comment and provides a link to a lovely family post on Nigel’s blog
Nigel Calder takes the pulse of science, as the author of Magic Universe and Einstein’s Universe. He checks predictions of the past half-century, to see how they worked out. And his hand is on the brow of frenzied climatology, as a co-author of The Chilling Stars: A Cosmic View of Climate Change.

Nigel did get to see.
When you look up some dark night he will twinkle back.
