Arthur C. Clarke died today in Sri Lanka at the age of 90. I won't even try to summarize the amazing things that Arthur C. Clarke has contributed to the world, I wouldn't be able to do him justice; if you care, ask wikipedia. Rest in peace Sir Arthur C. Clarke and thank you for all that you've given us.
I'll leave you with Clarke's three laws:
- 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.
- The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
- Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
