While waiting at my gate to board my flight at the Honolulu airport, I serendipitously had the distinct privilege and pleasure to meet a lifelong friend of Sir Arthur C. Clarke, Dr. Daniel Susott, M.D. He was with Sir Arthur in Sri Lanka during the time he was writing "The Songs of Distant Earth" , which I had brought along for the plane ride! We sat together on the plane to Chicago and had a long talk about his friendship with Sir Arthur; he shared many stories about how they scuba dived and went on various adventures together. He described how Sir Arthur would meditate underwater because it was the closest sensation to being weightless in space, during which he would gather his thoughts for the novel he was composing at the time. I had the chance to share my science with him and bring him up to speed on the current state of the search for extraterrestrial intelligence and evidence of technological civilizations, a topic on which he was keenly interested to hear. Dr. Susott is currently working on an anthology/biography of Sir Arthur's life, so keep your eyes peeled!

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
.
"The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible."

- Sir Arthur C. Clarke

From Wikipedia: "Serendipity& #34; means a "fortunate happenstance" or "pleasant surprise" . Sir Arthur C. Clarke would often refer to his adopted island home of Sri Lanka by its Arabic name "Serendip& #34; and wrote an anthology of essays and anecdotes about it.
.
Also, if you haven't read "The Songs of Distant Earth" yet, I would highly recommend it. It's a short read with a very compelling story about the realities of interstellar travel and the future of humans in the galaxy. There were lots of tears on my part near the end.

" ...Em menos de duas horas, a direção do seu movimento desviara mais de 90 graus, e ele provou, quase com desdém, sua total falta de interesse por todos aqueles mundos cuja sua paz de espírito havia tão grosseiramente perturbado." Queeee livro bom, cheguei a sonhar com Rama e sua estrutura cilíndrica 😍

Прочитал: Артур Кларк - Солнечный ветер. Кларк наиболее хорош, когда он перестает якшаться с физикой и больше заигрывает с философией и социологией. Just read: Arthur Clarke - The Wind from the Sun. #arthurcclarke #thewindfromthesun #book #justread #literature #sciencefiction #rendezvouswithrama #childhoodsend #thecityandthestars #russia #артуркларк #солнечныйветер #книга #прочитал #научнаяфантастика #литература #свиданиесрамой #конецдетства #городизвезды #россия #werock
