Renown science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke has passed away at the age of 90 in his adopted home of Sri Lanka. Clark, the author of “2001: A Space Odyssey”, came up with the concept for communications satellites and geosynchronous orbits.

Here’s a video by TVE Asia Pacific of Arthur C. Clarke reflecting upon his life after 90 orbits around the sun. In the video he expresses his three wishes for mankind and how he would like to be remembered.
