Isaac Azimov, the man who changed Sci-Fi

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!
