 1.- Arthur C. Clarke Obituary ....by Jurgen Reitze.COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) - Even in death Arthur C. Clarke would notcompromise his vision.The famed science fiction writer, who once denigrated religion as "anecessary evil in the childhood of our particular species," left writteninstructions that his funeral be completely secular, according to his aides."Absolutely no religious rites of any kind, relating to any religious faith,should be associated with my funeral," he wrote.Clarke died early Wednesday at age 90 and was to be buried in a privatefuneral this weekend in his adopted home of Sri Lanka. Clarke, who hadbattled debilitating post-polio syndrome for years, had suffered breathingproblems in recent days, aide Rohan De Silva said.The visionary author won worldwide acclaim with more than 100 books onspace, science and the future. The 1968 story "2001: A Space Odyssey" -written simultaneously as a novel and screenplay with director StanleyKubrick - was a frightening prophecy of artificial intelligence run amok.One year after it made Clarke a household name in fiction, the scientistentered the homes of millions of Americans alongside Walter Cronkiteanchoring television coverage of the Apollo mission to the moon.Clarke also was credited with the concept of communications satellites inPágina 2 de 66115 Excellere EzineCasa Juillet.19-04-2012file://C:\juillet\cfajf\Ezine\Ezine115 English.htm
 
1945, decades before they became a reality. Geosynchronous orbits, whichkeep satellites in a fixed position relative to the ground, are called Clarkeorbits.His nonfiction volumes on space travel and his explorations of the GreatBarrier Reef and Indian Ocean earned him respect in the world of science,and in 1976 he became an honorary fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.But it was his writing that shot him to his greatest fame and that gave himthe greatest fulfillment."Sometimes I am asked how I would like to be remembered," Clarke saidrecently. "I have had a diverse career as a writer, underwater explorer andspace promoter. Of all these, I would like to be remembered as a writer."From 1950, he began a prolific output of both fiction and nonfiction,sometimes publishing three books in a year.A statement from Clarke's office said he had recently reviewed the finalmanuscript of his latest novel. "The Last Theorem," co-written withFrederik Pohl, will be published later this year, it said.Some of his best-known books are "Childhood's End," 1953; "The City andThe Stars," 1956; "The Nine Billion Names of God," 1967; "RendezvouswithRama," 1973; "Imperial Earth," 1975; and "The Songs of Distant Earth,"1986.When Clarke and Kubrick got together to develop a movie about space,they looked for inspiration to several of Clarke's shorter pieces. As work progressed on the screenplay, Clarke also wrote a novel of the story. Hefollowed it up with "2010," "2061," and "3001: The Final Odyssey."Planetary scientist Torrence Johnson said Clarke's work was a majorinfluence on many in the field.Johnson, who has been exploring the solar system through the Voyager,Galileo and Cassini missions in his 35 years at NASA's Jet PropulsionLaboratory, recalled a meeting of planetary scientists and rocket engineerswhere talk turned to the author.Página 3 de 66115 Excellere EzineCasa Juillet.19-04-2012file://C:\juillet\cfajf\Ezine\Ezine115 English.htm
