In memory of Arthur C. Clark

World renowned Science Fiction author Arthur C. Clarke has passed on at age 90.  He was truly a visionary whose works are known worldwide.  The last 50 years of his life were spent in Sri Lanka.  Also well know are Clarke’s 3 laws

  1. “When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.”
  2. “The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.”
  3. “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

Few authors so successfully walk that Asimovian balance of great Science and great Fiction.

Here is a video on his 90th birthday.  Still the visionary.

Sir Arthur Clarke, thanks for broadening my horizons.
