Arthur C. Clarke was buried today
« on: 22 Mar 2008, 10:03 »

"I sometimes think that the universe is a machine designed for the perpetual astonishment of astronomers."

Clarke's most important scientific contribution may be his idea that geostationary satellites would be ideal telecommunications relays. He described this concept in a paper titled Extra-Terrestrial Relays Can Rocket Stations Give Worldwide Radio Coverage?, published in Wireless World in October 1945. The geostationary orbit is now sometimes known as the Clarke Orbit or the Clarke Belt in his honour. -

"I have a longstanding bias against religion that may be reflected in my comments" - Arthur C. Clarke 1917 - 2008.
