Earth from space

Scientific but not American

The April issue of Scientific American arrived this morning, with a wonderful editorial about the close relationship between science and science fiction, I checked out their website but couldn't find the editorial. I did find a nice obit of Arthur C. Clarke. a summation of his career and the honors he received. I loved the closing line:

"His impact, you might say, was indistinguishable from magic."
