Today is the 18th of March. Tomorrow, the 19th, Sir Arthur C. Clarke will be dead at 90. He will die as he lived... in the future.
My Uncle Lee once travelled to Sri Lanka to meet Mr. Clarke. They both shared a common interest. My uncle founded SCOLA to link the world by satellite for education. Arthur C. Clarke, in 1945, described in detail how satellites in geostationary orbit could be used for worldwide communication. The stationary-orbit area above earth where many satellites are positioned is now called the Clarke Belt. I'm sure my uncle and Sir Arthur had an interesting visit.
