R.I.P. And Thank-You, Sir Arthur C. Clarke"

Another great mind and inspirational achiever of the 20th Century passed from us this year (Dec.1917-Mar.2008). Clarke's writings of science and fiction inspired among other things, many beautiful, curious, and bizarre works of art to accompany his imagination. A big task to live up to, considering his fertile mind invented the idea of geosynchronous orbiting satellites, in one of his earliest science fiction stories. And who can forget the majestic Robert McCall movie posters for his story "2001: A Space Odyssey"?
