BON VOYAGE :SIR ARTHUR C. CLARKE



From the british sci-fi writer Arthur Charles Clarke (1917-2008), we should rescue 2 things: I) Their liking to discuss in extensive, the advantages and disadvantages of new technologies and his interest for one taking of conscience on the part of the man, with regard to his environment to which seems to be destroying but that building. It is common to see in Clarke’s books good and bad actions exercised on the biosphere. Adducing that technology per se is insufficient, he requests tolerance and compassion to achieve a bigger understanding among nations. II) To understand Clarke it would be better to see his video carried out little before turning 90 years, to which he gives in calling his "90 orbits". Clarke is a techno-optimist that foresee big knitted human space communities. As example of the previous thing, Clarke mentions the recent beginning of human space tourism and the increasing of cellular mobiles (3.3 billions in 25 years). In the video Clarke, expressed his desires to : a) see soon, microbial or complex extraterrestrial life, b) see the replacement of fossil energy for another clean one and c) a built peace with effort arriving to Sri Lanka (his second country) and to the rest of the world.

HASTA LA VISTA SIR ARTHUR C. CLARKE

Del escritor de ciencia ficción ingles Arthur Charles Clarke (
1917-2008), deberiamos rescatar 2 cosas : I) Su afición a discutir in extenso, las ventajas y desventajas de las nuevas tecnologías y su interés por una toma de conciencia por parte del hombre, con respecto a su entorno al que parece estar destruyendo mas que construyendo. Es comun ver en las obras de Clarke, buenas y malas acciones ejercidas sobre la biósfera. Aduciendo que la tecnologia per se es insuficiente, solicita tolerancia y compasion para lograr una mayor comprension entre naciones. II) Para entender a Clarke, que mejor que ver su video realizado poco antes de cumplir 90 años, a los cuales da en llamar sus “90 órbitas”. Clarke es un tecno-optimista que visiona grandes comunidades espaciales humanas estrechamente unidas. Como ejemplo de lo previo, Clarke cita el reciente inicio del turismo espacial y la densificación de los celulares móbiles (3.3 billones en 25 años). En el video Clarke expresa sus deseos de: a) ver pronto, vida extraterrestre microbiana o compleja b) reemplazo de la energía fósil por otra limpia y c) una paz construida con esfuerzo llegando a Sri Lanka (su patria adoptiva) y al resto del mundo.
