A marvellous astronomer, broadcaster and author.

Edit: as kindly pointed out, I've misspelt Couper in the thread title.

Only 70. Shame.

"At the age of 16, she wrote to British television astronomer Patrick Moore asking if she would be able to take up a career in astronomy, and received the reply "being a girl is no problem at all"!

Nice touch on her wiki page.

(Slight misspelling there Bassers. Couper, in case that affects any attempts to look her up).

Well it looks like a duck, it sounds like a duck. Nope, dunno what it is.

Well said BasingstokeBlue.

Absolute natural broadcaster and she always come across as feisty but with a good sense of humour.

Got an excellent book she wrote with Nigel Henbest a couple of years ago, regular guest on Howard Hughes The Unexplained on Talkradio.

RIP
