End of a Space Odyssey

Farewell to Arthur C. Clarke, who warped millions of minds teaming up with Kubrick for "2001: A Space Odyssey." That cinematic icon seems to overshadow Clarke's contributions to the popularization of science and space exploration, and the nearly one hundred books he wrote, though they were massive achievements in their own right. All in all, an astronomical contribution from the son of a Minehead farmer.

Goodbye, Mr. Clarke.
