Frederick I Ordway III

Frederick I Ordway III, a man who helped shape 2001: A Space Odyssey, has passed away. He was involved in the early days of rocketry in the United States after World War II, wrote or co-wrote many non-fiction books on space travel and astronomical art (I even have one signed by him!) and more.

You probably don't know his name, but you've seen his impact given the impact that 2001 had on many other movies, television shows, books, paintings and more.

Addendum: Washington Post obituary.
