Arthur C. Clarke

Geburtstag: 16. Dezember 1917
Todesdatum: 19. März 2008
Andere Namen: Arthur Charles Clarke

Sir Arthur Charles Clarke, CBE, FRAS, Sri Lankabhimanya, war ein britischer Science-Fiction-Schriftsteller und Physiker. Durch den Film 2001: Odyssee im Weltraum von Stanley Kubrick, der auf einer Kurzgeschichte Clarkes beruht und dessen Drehbuch Clarke gemeinsam mit Kubrick schrieb, wurde er auch außerhalb der Science-Fiction-Szene bekannt. Clarke gilt als Visionär neuer Techniken, die er außer in Science-Fiction-Romanen und -Kurzgeschichten auch in wissenschaftlichen Artikeln beschrieb. Mit Isaac Asimov und Robert A. Heinlein wird er oft zu den „Big Three“ der englischsprachigen Science Fiction gezählt. Wikipedia

„I'm sure the universe is full of intelligent life. It's just been too intelligent to come here.“

—  Arthur C. Clarke

„In my time I’ve been very fortunate to see many of my dreams come true!“

—  Arthur C. Clarke

90th Birthday Reflections (2007)
Kontext: In my time I’ve been very fortunate to see many of my dreams come true! Growing up in the 1920s and 1930s, I never expected to see so much happen in the span of a few decades. We "space cadets" of the British Interplanetary Society spent all our spare time discussing space travel — but we didn’t imagine that it lay in our own near future… I still can't quite believe that we've just marked the 50th anniversary of the Space Age! We’ve accomplished a great deal in that time, but the "Golden Age of Space" is only just beginning. Over the next 50 years, thousands of people will travel to Earth orbit — and then, to the Moon and beyond. Space travel — and space tourism — will one day become almost as commonplace as flying to exotic destinations on our own planet.

„Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.“

—  Arthur C. Clarke

As quoted in Visions : How Science Will Revolutionize the Twenty-First Century (1999) by Michio Kaku, p. 295
2000s and attributed from posthumous publications

„Clarke's Third Law: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.“

—  Arthur C. Clarke

Profiles of the Future (revised edition, 1973)

„I want to see lasting and meaningful peace achieved in Sri Lanka as early as possible. But I am aware that peace cannot just be wished; it involves hard work, courage and persistence.“

—  Arthur C. Clarke

As quoted in the [Sri Lanka] Sunday Times (31 December 2000)
2000s and attributed from posthumous publications
Kontext: We should be less concerned about adding years to life, and more about adding life to years. I have been very fortunate to have witnessed some of humanity's greatest achievements during the 20th century that is nearing its end. Yet we must admit that it has also been the most savage century in the history of our kind. If I can have one more wish, I want to see lasting and meaningful peace achieved in Sri Lanka as early as possible. But I am aware that peace cannot just be wished; it involves hard work, courage and persistence.
As we welcome 2001, let us harness our collective energies to create a culture of peace and a land of prosperity.

„I want to be remembered most as a writer — one who entertained readers, and, hopefully, stretched their imagination as well.“

—  Arthur C. Clarke

90th Birthday Reflections (2007)
Kontext: I'm sometimes asked how I would like to be remembered. I've had a diverse career as a writer, underwater explorer, space promoter and science populariser. Of all these, I want to be remembered most as a writer — one who entertained readers, and, hopefully, stretched their imagination as well.

„The danger of asteroid or comet impact is one of the best reasons for getting into space“

—  Arthur C. Clarke

"Meeting of the Minds : Buzz Aldrin Visits Arthur C. Clarke" by Andrew Chaikin (27 February 2001) http://web.archive.org/web/20010302082528/http://www.space.com/peopleinterviews/aldrin_clarke_010227.html
2000s and attributed from posthumous publications
Kontext: The danger of asteroid or comet impact is one of the best reasons for getting into space … I'm very fond of quoting my friend Larry Niven: "The dinosaurs became extinct because they didn't have a space program. And if we become extinct because we don't have a space program, it'll serve us right!"
