A Sad Special Announcement - the passing of Dr. Jeff Bell

My friends, our well known and beloved Space Show guest and friend, Dr. Jeff Bell, passed away last week after a strong fight and lenghty illness with pancreatic cancer.  The last time Jeff was a guest, he described his fight on air.  I met him last fall in The Bay Area and he was in pretty good shape but that did not last.  I talked with Jeff a few days before he left us.  He was his usual sharp and observant self.  The Space Show will miss him and I will miss a great friend.
