Clark’s major claim to fame is that he predicted (some say conceived) the use of satellites for worldwide communications. This apparently happened in the mid-1940s. Today, on the radio I heard someone state that Clark envisioned huge, manned, orbital platforms (someone had to be up there to replace the vacuum tubes when they burned out).
Finding this story to be very amusing I endeavored to find the book, story, article, paper, essay, patent, or whatever in which he made this prediction.
I can’t find it.
I don’t think it’s to be found in any of his Science Fiction since I’m pretty sure I exhausted his work from the '40s back in high school.
Anybody know where this prediction is to be found?
