If Only We Had Taller Been

Ray Bradbury, author of such titles as, Fahrenheit 451, which later became a film, as well as, The Martian Chronicles, and others, recently passed away at the age of 91. Taking a moment to commemorate this great man’s life, we turn our clocks back to 1971, the eve of the Mariner 9 launch. Ray Bradbury took part in a penal discussion at Caltech with fellow giants, Carl Sagan, Arthur C. Clark, Bruce Murray, and Walter Sullivan.

NASA’s JPL recently released a clip featuring Ray, sharing his good humor and reading his short, yet powerfully inspiring, poem.
