Arthur C Clark passes on
British science fiction legend and visionary Sir Arthur C. Clarke today passed on in his home in Sri Lanka, after suffering a cardio-respiratory attack. The author, whose prophetic works inspired such films as Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, predicted such things as space shuttle, super computers, and rapid communications systems years before their time. He also inspired several other of science fiction's household names, such as Gene Roddenberry.
