"After peering into the void from a perch 
outside the visitor center, young Henry, 9, 
said he liked the rugged landscape. 
'It’s a good place to film a space movie,' he said.

Funny he should mention that — 
the crater was the setting for the climactic scenes 
of the 1984 sci-fi film 'Starman,' with Jeff Bridges 
and Karen Allen arriving for a rendezvous with 
an alien mother ship."

— Henry Fountain in The New York Times , Jan. 22, 2009

Lynden-Bell reportedly died at 82 on Feb. 5, 2018 (British time).
