It’s with sadness that I must post about the recent passing of Professor John David North on October 31st.

Professor North was an eminent historian of astronomy, with interdisciplinary expertise spanning fields as diverse as the history of science and English literature. This year saw the release of a revised edition of his book entitled ‘Cosmos: An Illustrated History of Astronomy and Cosmology’, published by the University of Chicago Press. His passing is a great loss, and he will be missed.
