Arthur C. Clarke was more than a science fiction writer with a good imagination. Many of his groundbreaking concepts have become a reality over the years, including satellite technology, commercial spaceflight, and artificial intelligence. Today, scientists are still working to create ideas that Clarke introduced in his books Childhood's End, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and The Fountains of Paradise. Using his three laws of prediction, Clarke realized that anything you can imagine is possible, and that major technological advancements are indistinguishable from magic.
