He lead a full life. I wouldn't be sad.

Gotta agree. He certainly achieved a lot and with 2001: A Space Odyssey, he pretty much rewrote sci-fi.

A great man, with a great mind. In a humorous way, at least people will be able to catch up on his books, considering he had hundreds of them! Clearly, a man who enjoyed exploring everything, and why not!

He will be missed, by me as well. One of my favorite writers, and one of the relatively few science fiction authors that along with great stories gave us incredible ideas to ponder, about the universe and ourselves. I salute you Mr. Clarke. :salute:
