Arthur C. Clarke is dead...for now!

Arthur C. Clarke, author of one of the most prominent science fiction stories of all time (2001: a Space Odissey), has recently died but the efforts to revive him have already start :-)

Enjoy one of his great works, the Three Laws of Predictions:

  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 very 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.

This is so true :-)
