Science-fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke, who co-wrote the epic film "2001: A Space Odyssey" and raised the idea of communications satellites in the 1940s, has died at age 90, an associate said.

Clarke had been wheelchair-bound for several years with complications stemming from a youthful bout with polio and had suffered from back trouble recently, said Scott Chase, the secretary of the nonprofit Arthur C. Clarke Foundation.

He died early Wednesday at a hospital in Colombo, Sri Lanka, where he had lived since the 1950s, Chase said.
Edit - Yeah, I know I misspelled his first name in the thread title.

It's sad that all the Grandmaster SF writers who shaped my mind growing up are leaving

RIP Mr Clark and thank you for the many hours of enjoyment and expanding my worldview
