Isaac Asimov died today – 16 years ago

Author (of “Nightfall” (1941), “I, Robot” (1950), “The Intelligent Man's Guide to Science” (1960), “Asimov's Guide to the Bible” (1967, 1969), and many other writings) Isaac Asimov was born "between October 4, 1919 and January 2, 1920" in Petrovichi, Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic. He said, “Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition." [Amen. But most will just forfeit the chance.]... Mr. Asimov died on April 6, 1992 in New York City, New York.
