Arthur C. Clarke, RIP

Transience, the fate of humanity. I’m sure I’m only one of many millions whom his stories reached and moved at a young age. I remember being awed by “2001: A Space Odyssey”, absorbed by “Childhood’s End”, and crying on reading “Transience”, all as a teenager. And for all I know, this very blog post will be transmitted to some remote part of the internet via a satellite in Clarke orbit. Sir Arthur, good bye, and maybe see you on a seashore a few million years in the future.
