Isaac Azimov, the man who changed Sci-Fi

Isaac Azimov, one of 3 founders of the modern Science Fiction, was born on January 2nd, 1920 in the Soviet Union. His family immigrated to the United States when he was just a boy, so he never learned Russian. He started to write books at the early age, writing over 500 throughout his career.

The most known books are his “Foundation” and “I, Robot” series. He also penned the 3 main laws of robotics that are holding true to this day:

  1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

Rest in peace Isaac, we will remember you forever!
