Science Fiction author Arthur C. Clarke, author of 2001: A Space Odyssey among other works, died today at age 90. Kids of the ’80s (such as myself) probably remember Clarke mostly for his eponymous television shows, Arthur C. Clarke’s Mysterious World, Arthur C. Clarke’s Mysterious Universe, and Arthur C. Clarke’s World of Strange Powers, all of which were badass. Clarke continued keeping up with technology to the end, recently posting the above clip to YouTube on the eve of his 90th birthday, looking back on his life while continuing to look forward to technological innovations still to come. He was indeed a rarity amongst men, humble in his vast genius. RIP Arthur C. Clarke.
