Excerpt from The Exploration of Space
One most encouraging fact about the spectacular and dramatic events of the last few years is the way in which they have confirmed all the basic predictions and calculations of the astronautical theorists, who had been in error only in being too conservative. In revising this book, I have done my best to avoid the same fault; it will be interesting to see, ten years from now, how successful I have been.

Arthur C. Clarke was considered to be the greatest science fiction writer of all time. He was an international treasure in many other ways: an article he wrote in 1945 led to the invention of satellite technology. Books by Mr. Clarke - both fiction and nonfiction - have more than one hundred million copies in print worldwide. He died in 2008 at the age of 90.
