Arthur C Clarke - Futurist and Science Fiction Writer


Sir Arthur Charles Clarke (16 December 1917 - 19 March 2008) was a British science fiction author, inventor, and futurist, most famous for predicting the invention of geo-stationary satellites and his novel 2001: A Space Odyssey, written in parallel of the script for the eponymous film together with legendary film-director Stanley Kubric.

Together with Robert A. Heinlein and Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke was known as one of the "Big Three" great authors of science fiction.

Arthur C. Clarke formulated the following three "laws" of prediction:

1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is probably wrong.

2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.

3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
