    Ah, but Arthur C. Clarke did SOOOO MMUUUUCCCHHH more than 2001 Space Odyssey. A book I particularly enjoyed some years ago was "The Fountains of Paradise," in which he advocates a sort of "elevator" to space.

    He was truly remarkable and amazing. He was one of those people I, as a writer, would have loved to have met. Not now. *sigh*

    Agreed. Ranma was one of Jenn's favorite series. And as she said this morning, you can thank Clarke for the idea of satellites as well.

    That's true, he did the math that proved the theory long before the technology to launch satellites was available. He will be missed but he also left a rich legacy and many entertaining reads.

    Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, early theoretical Russian rocket scientist, is credited with proposing in 1920 rockets in space, elevators to space and man-made satellites.

    In 1945 Arthur C Clarke proposed use of three geostationary satellites to provide worldwide communication.
