RIP - Sci-fi master Arthur C. Clarke

The Associated Press just put it mildly:
"Aide says science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke has died in Sri Lanka at the age of 90."

I wasn't the biggest fan of his fiction, Mr Clarke wrote something in the last days of the 20th century that has always clung to the back of my mind: Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.

Sir Arthur Charles Clarke
Dec 16, 1917 - March 18, 2008
