Sci-Fi legend Arthur C Clarke passes away CBE (16 December 1917 - 19 March 2008

I remember Arthur C Clarke and the book 2001- Space Odyssey from my childhood. I was also fascinated by the fact that he stayed in Sri Lanka. That seemed so close to Madras where I did my schooling.

He will be remembered for bringing space closer to us through his writings.

Extract from Wikipedia:

Sir Arthur Charles Clarke, CBE (16 December 1917 - 19 March 2008) was a British science fiction author, inventor, and futurist, most famous for his novel 2001: A Space Odyssey, and for collaborating with director Stanley Kubrick on the film of the same name.
