(Agencies) Updated: 2007-12-17 08:13 Turning 90 on Sunday, British science fiction writer and visionary Arthur C. Colt McCoy Jersey . Clarke has three birthday wishes: For ET to call, for man to kick his oil habit and for peace in his adoptive Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan guest resident Arthur C. Clarke , left, the British science-fiction author, inventor, and futurist, most famous for his novel 2001: A Space Odyssey, and for collaborating with director Stanley Kubrick on the film of the same name, cuts a cake during a felicitation to mark his 90th birthday in Colombo, Sri Lanka, Sunday, Dec.16, 2007. [Agencies] Marking his 90th orbit of the sun, the prolific author and theorist who was one of the first to suggest the use of satellites orbiting the earth for communications, would like to be remembered foremost as a writer - and predicts commercial space travel will one day be commonplace. If I may be allowed just three wishes ... I would like to see some evidence of extraterrestrial life. Ive always believed that were not alone in the universe, but were still waiting for ET to call us or give us some kind of sign, he said in a video posted on website www.youtube.com. Secondly, I would like to see us kick our current addiction to oil and adopt clean energy sources, he added. Climate change has now added a new sense of urgency ... We cant allow coal and oil to slowly bake our planet. And thirdly, he turns to Sri Lanka, where he has lived for the past 50 years, written many of his more than 80 books and received the Indian Ocean island nations top civilian honor in 2005 for his contributions to science and technology and his commitment to his adopted country. Ive been living in Sri Lanka for 50 years, and half that time Ive been a sad witness to a bitter conflict that divides my adopted country, and dearly wish to see lasting peace established in Sri Lanka as soon as possible, Clarke said. Born in England in 1917, Clarke first came to the island in the 1950s for scuba diving and said he became a resident after he fell in love with the place. In the 1940s he forecast that man would reach the moon by the year 2000, an idea experts dismissed as rubbish. When Neil Armstrong landed in 1969, the US said Clarke provided the essential intellectual drive that led us to the moon. He has written more than 80 books, including 2001: A Space Odyssey and 500 short stories and articles, and says his mind continues to roam the universe as much as it did as a young space cadet in the 1920s and 1930s, despite the fact he is now wheelchair-bound. The golden age of space is only just beginning, he said. Over the next 50 years, thousands of people will travel to earth orbit and then to the moon and beyond. Space travel and space tourism will one day become almost as commonplace as flying to exotic destinations on our own planet. Adam Dunn Jersey . Deep in Carolina territory, McNabb couldnt find an open receiver and decided to tuck the ball and run. With the only thing between him and the end zone being Panthers cornerback Richard Marshall, McNabb lowered his shoulder and took a big hit before spinning across the goal line. Andy Dalton Jersey . The moves come less than a week after the sale of the team from Drayton McLane to Crane was officially completed last Tuesday, a transaction that requires the franchise to move from the NL Central to the AL West in 2013.
