A few people sent word that Science Fiction Grandmaster Arthur C. Clarke has died, aged 90. When I was a little kid I read his Islands in the Sky, which opened my eyes to the wonders of science and astronomy. I've been a huge fan of his writing ever since and consider him partly responsible for why I'm such a huge nerd. Thanks Arthur, and rest in peace.
