    Default Astronomer Heather Couper dies at 70

    Journey Well

    Broadcaster and astronomer Heather Couper has died at the age of 70.

    Dr Couper appeared on the BBC's Blue Peter and The Sky At Night programmes, as well as presenting and producing acclaimed science documentaries.

    She also hosted radio series including the BBC World Service's long-running Seeing Stars and BBC Radio 4's Cosmic Quest and Starwatch.

    Her best friend and business partner, Nigel Henbest, said she had died on Wednesday after a short illness.

    She had been a "charismatic... and passionate communicator of science", he said.

    "She got people really excited about the Universe and about space - that was her love, her passion in life."
