It was hard to believe watching the video that within 10 months he'd be dead. But he is.

Professor Randy Pausch, the man who inspired millions with his acclaimed "Last Lecture" has died. The Carnegie Mellon University professor gained international fame when he presented a remarkable talk called "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" at the US university to a packed audience as part of a series that was ironically called "The Last Lecture".

If you haven't seen it yet and have just over an hour to kill, Pausch's lecture is worth the effort and the bandwidth. Some 4,031,952 people have watched the video on Youtube.

Prof Pausch died at his home ten months after giving his last lecture on Friday July 25 of complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 47.
