Arthur C. Clarke dies at 90

I was very sorry to read that Arthur C. Clarke died today. The NY Times has a very good account of his life.

I have read all his novels, some more than once. I also remember coming across geostationary orbits (which he discovered) when I was studying physics at school and being surprised at their implications after I worked out the maths for myself.
