RIP, Mr Wizard

Goodbye to a 90-year old pioneer of informal education. Though i was personally never a big fan of his TV show, Don Herbert changed the face of science education forever. I might not have a job now if it weren't for him. So thanks, Mr Wizard. Let's all blow something up in his honor.

Neither do I...and I'm in the field!

Check here to learn about Herbert:

(IIRC, he may have been a guest on Letterman's first show!)

Blow something up in his honor, Niki? Done and done!
