In 1934, while still a teenager, he joined the BIS, British Interplanetary Society. In 1945, he proposed a satellite communication system using geostationary orbits. He was the chairman of the British Interplanetary Society from 1946 to 1947 and again in 1951–1953.Clarke immigrated to Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) in 1956, to pursue his interest in scuba diving.

Clarke's Mysterious World.
