Title: Arthur C. Clarke: Father of Satellite Communication
Authors: Mascarenhas, K. Smiles
Issue Date: Mar-2011
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: WHEN we see Wimbledon live, or the opening ceremony of the Olympics, via satellite, we seldom remember the person who first suggested that satellites could be used for communication purposes. Even when that person entered the Glorious Abode on 19 March 2008, few TV channels remembered him with gratitude. Even Science Fiction buffs who read his novels avidly must have failed to notice the demise of a great Scientific Prophet—Sir Arthur C. Clarke who predicted not only communication through Geo-stationary satellites, but also advances in computer technology.
