The passing of a great man...

Tue Mar 18, 2008 11:24 pm

I don't know if many of you are huge science fiction mans, but Arthur C. Clarke passed away this afternoon at 90 years old in Sri Lanka. Godspeed to him and may humanity one day catch up with his vision.

Wow . . . the last of the "big three"--Asimov, Clarke, and Heinlein--has passed away. I'm not familiar with Clarke's writing, but he was certainly a giant in the field of science fiction.

If you remember 2001: A Space Oddysey, then you know his writings.

Didn't he have something to do with Star Trek or at least Gene Roddenberry?
