Thread: Arthur C Clarke

    Arthur C Clarke

    Legendary sci-fi writer and great visionary, Arthur C Clarke sadly passed away today, at the age of 90.

    For me his books were stuff of living legend, something to stimulate the mind not the mention the great sci-fi movies attributed to his name.

    He asked his funeral to be simple service with no religious fanfare or associations whatsoever.

    One of his final wishes before he died, was difinitive proof of ET life. Looks like his wait will go on a little longer!

    He was a great author, and thought up geosynchronous orbits (Clarke Orbit) long before anyone or anything was able to get there.
