Vale Ray Bradbury

As you have probably already heard, Ray Bradbury passed away yesterday at the age of 91.

Ray Bradbury was one of the last of that generation of science fiction authors, born before the Great Depression, who were a part of the 1940’s – 1960’s Golden Age of SF. He will be missed by the SF community as a gentlemanly voice of reason and wit.

The news feeds are full of the suggestion that the spot where NASA’s Mars rover, Curiosity, will land on Mars in August 2012 should be named Ray Bradbury Memorial Station. It would be a nice touch.
