ARTHUR C CLARKE (1917-2008)

Arthur C Clarke

One of the world’s greatest science fiction writers (famous for 2001: A  Space Odyssey) passed away today in Colombo. Not many people know that he was a  true visionary he came up with the idea for Geostationary Satellites as far back as 1945. Below are some of his memorable Laws:

Clarke’s First Law: When a distinguished but elderly scientist says that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he says it is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

Clarke’s Third (and most quoted) Law: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
