Monolith occupied by Clarke reached the Moon's surface today at 6:14 GMT, the impact burying it beneath lunar sand.

Popular British science fiction writer Sir Arthur C Clarke, author of more than 100 fiction and non-fiction books, has been entombed in a tetrahedral artifact of a mystic dark polished mineral and shot to the Moon's surface by the European space agency, reports BBC News.

The monolith occupied by Clarke, a prolific writer who was often called "the first dweller in the electronic cottage", reached the Moon's surface today at 6:14 GMT, the force of impact burying it beneath the shifting lunar sands.

Acclaimed American film director and producer Stanley Kubrick occupies a similar black tetrahedral artifact immediately beside that of Sir Arthur, his monolith having been shot to the Moon by NASA in 1999.

The pair of mysterious artifacts will be surrounded by a spherical forcefield powered by an incomprehensible alien technology that lies beyond our horizons until their resting place is rediscovered by future astronaut Dave Bowman and HAL 9000, his psychotic and over-achieving onboard computer.

It is thought by most physicists and anthropologists that these two Moon-based artifacts deposited a cryptic monolith amoung Earth hominids at the dawn of time in order to stimulate development of the advanced skills and society that would eventually be capable of shooting the two artifacts onto the surface of the Moon in 1999 and 2008.

That this creates a time paradox fazed neither Kubrick nor Clarke.
