Arthur C. Clarke 1917-2008

Arthur C. Clarke, one of the world’s most well known science fiction writers, passed away yesterday at the age of 90.  I will never forget reading 2001:A Space Odyssey for the first time my freshman year of high school.  It changed the way I think about life, science & the future.

Some of the images from the film, which was a tremendous collaboration between Mr. Clarke & Stanley Kubrick, left a serious impression on me.  I know I will be revisiting this film very soon.  There is a wonderful article about Arthur C. Clarke and his contributions to literature and science at the New York Times.  You can see some wonderful images from the film here.  I will be unable to post the rest of the week, so I’d like to wish, to those of you who celebrate, a Happy Easter!  Cheers.
