News from BBC Arthur C. Clarke has passed away. His obituary is here and link to the Arthur C. Clarke Foundation.
When I was a kid, I read as many of his books as I could find. When I was in college, 2001 came out, which renewed my love of science fiction. His works are so timeless, even if his body was not. Even today, with many of the ideas that he introduced in his fiction are seeing practical applications, his writings are still alive.
