Author Ray Bradbury - who sent generations of readers on a journey through patentime futuristic worlds - died yesterday at the age of 91 in Los Angeles. Bradbury wrote over 27 books and collections of stories. Among his famous books are "Notes from Mars", "Fahrenheit 451: "Dandelion Wine", and many others as well as over 600 short stories. He brought prestige to science fiction and helped the field transform from a fringe branch into true literature.
In an interview with the 365 Days of Astronomy podcast, Bradbury said that he would like to be buried on Mars.
"I don't want to be the first astronaut to get there" he said. "For me it's too late, but I'd like to be the first dead person to get there. I want to arrive in a can of Campbell's soup. I was buried in the area known as Bradbury Abyss. They named a place on Mars after my name and I bless that." Indeed if there was anyone who deserved to be commemorated on Mars it was Bradbury.
Bradbury wrote the following advice in "Fahrenheit 451" "Fill your eyes with wonder, live as if you were going to die in ten seconds. Look at the world, it is much more wonderful than we dream."
Ray Bradbury was born on August 22, 1920, in Waukegan, Illinois, something that influenced his writing. I was born at exactly the right time to write about these things."
Bradbury will be missed by all of us.

His best-selling book Fahrenheit 451 depicted a bleak future in which firefighters burn books, which he later admitted meant to warn against television destroying interest in literature. The title refers to the temperature at which the paper begins to burn.
The book, which Bradbury wrote on a rented typewriter in the UCLA university library, describes a world that may be familiar to readers in the 21st century - large interactive televisions, headset communication systems, intrusive advertising and political correctness.

Bradbury wrote about science fiction: "Science fiction is an excellent way to pretend that you are writing about the future when in reality you intend to attack the recent past and the present."
"In science fiction we dream". told the New York Times.
"In order for us to inhabit space, rebuild our cities, deal with any number of homes, we must imagine the future, including the new technologies that will be required."

  1. Fahrenheit is one of the books. And burial in space sounds amazing and the next step. The truth is that even in Israel (!) Ali Shekhlet do burials of writers and civil burials and cremation, etc.. and I remember that they would also do burials in space!

  2. A programmer constantly made experiments during the evening and night to see how it is possible to make it easier to load pages on the website. You may have tried to write a comment just as he was checking the comments mechanism. And by the way, from now on - articles with hundreds of comments show only the last 20 comments and those who want can browse backwards.

  3. Where it says "domestication" does it probably mean problems?

    Besides, if his request is not fulfilled, I confiscate Mars and its inhabitants from the historically unaware and clearly unromantic, brazen!
