R.I.P. A.C.C.

It is a sad day for Science Fiction. Sir Arthur C. Clarke, author of 2001: A Space Odyssey among others, has passed away at the age of 90.

Sir Arthur Charles Clarke

"Life is just one big banana. Science fiction allows us all to peel open the reality and discover the yellow truth inside."

"Somewhere in me is a curiosity sensor. I want to know what's over the next hill. You know, people can live longer without food than without information. Without information, you'd go crazy."
