In Memorium

Arthur C. Clarke
Dec 6, 1917 - Mar 18, 2008
R. I. P.

Clarke's Three Laws:

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.
from: Profiles of the Future (1962)
