Science has just lost one of its greatest creative minds.
Arthur C. Clarke has died in Sri Lanka at the age of 90.
Clarke authored more than 100 science fiction books, including “2001: A Space Odyssey.” He is credited with the idea for geosynchronous communications satellites, space elevators, and predicting space travel before rockets were even test fired.
Perhaps, as some wit remarked, the best proof that there is Intelligent Life in Outer Space is the fact it hasn’t come here. Well, it can’t hide forever – one day we will overhear it.
Arthur C. Clarke
