Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on October 20th, 2010

This may be the coolest action figure ever and it isn’t a man, a robot or an alien. It’s the 2001: A Space Odyssey Monolith action figure. A perfect scale model of the original monolith from the 60′s film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Zero points of articulation, but it kicks the ass of all other figures. You can now own your very own non-posable 2001: A Space Odyssey Monolith action figure for just $12.99 from ThinkGeek. Pose some monkeys around it or have some astronauts dig it up on the moon’s surface.

Arthur C. Clarke dies at 90 years old in Sri LankaArthur C. Clarke, science fiction author and most famously known for his work on “2001: A Space Odyssey” and his early forecast of communication satellites, died Wednesday in Colombo, Sri Lanka at the age of 90.

Clarke wrote nearly 100 books in his lifetime dealing mostly with the future of science and the idea that the destiny of the human race lied somewhere beyond the Earth. His writings shaped the way many people thought about science and technology and inspired a wide range of individuals ranging from scientific astronomer Carl Sagan to Gene Roddenberry with Star Trek.
