Clarke and a Sri Lankan colleague on the construction site for the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Modern Technologies, 1983. Note in the background the communications satellite antenna—a direct link to Clarke’s 1945 conceptualization of geostationary communication satellites. Clarke saw satellite communications as a special resource for developing countries.
