R.I.P. - Mr. Wizard

I'm sad to pass along the information that Don Herbert, best known as "Mr. Wizard" to 3 generations of children, has died. Herbert died at his home after a long battle with multiple myeloma. He was 89.

Mr. Wizard was the best. If there was ever a man that made science fun without it being goofy, it was him. No offense to Bill Nye, but he's just no Mr. Wizard. Thanks for everything you taught me, Mr. Herbert.
