Oh noes, Arthur C. Clarke is no more

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:

  1. 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.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
  3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
