I don't think it's sad at all. The guy was 90 years old, chances are if he'd lived much longer, it would not really be quality time. So many things can go wrong at an age like that.
And he was lucky to get that old, most people die younger than that.

He lived a full life. He blessed the world with many great stories. Thank you. :(

He was a legend. I must admit I've never read a single story of his but some of my favorite writers revere him

Hoping even more now that the Space Elevator actually happens.

Indeed, he lived a full life, made all the more astonishing by the fact that he had been ill for 20 years.
Death is always a sad thing, even when it's of old age...and Clarke contributed a lot to not only science fiction but science period.

I think he lived a full life and I think its awesome that he lived that long. R.I.P.
He was a great scientist and fiction author. Rest in peace.

He was a great inventor too, invented the communications satellite. He helped change the world.

Never read any of his novels I used to love Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious World (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_C._Clarke's_Mysterious_World) when I was a kid. Might pick up the recently released DVD set.
