In February 2001 a church window dedicated to him was unveiled in Upton.
"In 2007, the European Space Agency launched"
That sounds like that's what they saw through the telescope, so I rephrased it:
In 1792, another musician, Joseph Haydn from Austria, visited Herschel and looked through his telescope.
(I also changed the year)
A 40km diameter crater on the moon was named after him in 1935.
Added some EGE links
Changed curly apostrophies
Changed the title to "Sir William Herschel"
