On March 19th, 2008 Arthur C. Clarke went on his final odyssey into the infinite. Today on Far Future Horizons we would like to pay homage to the Man, who inspired three generations of men and women to pursue careers in science and space with his visionary writings.
Sir Arthur was and will always remain the Man Who Saw the Future.
Referred to as a genius, this one man think tank is considered the ultimate futurist by his devoted fans. How is it that Clarke's views of the future, as described in his many novels, have often become very present realities, such as videophones, laptop computers, E-mail, the space shuttle and cloning? One thing is for sure, Arthur C. Clarke is one of the most celebrated science fiction authors of our time. His novels 2001: A Space Odyssey and most recently 3001: The Final Odyssey, as well as more than 60 other titles have inspired generations of people, propelling us into the future, setting our minds free to explore.
