Today see's the passing of a man that changed the World. Arthur C Clarke has been influential in the world of science fiction, science space advocacy and and many of his ideas and predictions came true during his lifetime. One of his unaccomplished goals mentioned in a recording made to family and friends, said that he 'would have liked to see evidence of extraterrestrial life during his lifetime'. Part of the legacy he leaves behind includes predicting that man would land on the moon by 2000, communication satellites would live in geosynchronous orbits and probably most famously is his story, 'The Sentinel' which was turned into the science fiction epic 2001: A Space Odyssey. Watch Arthur's last comments after the Jump.
