His Final Journey
Ladies and gentlemen, the world has lost a great mind. Yesterday, March 19th, 2008 Arthur C. Clarke died at the age of 90 years young. Clarke, best known for his book "2001: A Space Odyssey" and the Stanley Kubrick movie adaptation, was a prolific science fiction writer whose career spanned over fifty years.
Clarke not only composed an astounding body of work, but his imagination helped create many of the things used in space exploration today. He was a great believer in the fantastic; he knew that no matter how far-fetched his stories may be, some day they would be surpassed. Arthur C. Clarke's imagination and drive for exploring the unknown have been an inspiration to generations of science fiction fans, explorers, and star gazers alike.
Mr. Clarke, your beautiful mind and amazing imagination will be missed. Good luck on your final and greatest journey.
