Sad news: Astronomer David Levy suffers a stroke
Astronomer David Levy had a stroke last week. MSM coverage has been spotty. Here's a link to a msg.
He is the co-discoverer of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9, the comet that slammed into Jupiter. Along with the late Eugene Shoemaker, Levy compelled a "heads up!" re-evaluation of the importance of comets, asteroids, and meteors. We owe a debt of gratitude to these two men. Let's all wish Levy a speedy recovery.
