The legendary British science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke has died. The co-writer on '2001: A Space Odyssey' passed away today aged 90.
Clarke, who had battled debilitating post-polio syndrome since the 1960s, died at 1:30 a.m. in his adopted home of Sri Lanka after suffering breathing problems, aide Rohan De Silva said.
"Sometimes I am asked how I would like to be remembered," Clarke said recently. "I have had a diverse career as a writer, underwater explorer and space promoter. Of all these I would like to be remembered as a writer."
Clarke had written over 100 books on space, science and the future.
