Colorado Springs, Colo. (June 6, 2012) — The Space Foundation issued a statement today expressing sadness at the death of writer Ray Bradbury, who often wrote about space themes and was author of such science fiction works as The Martian Chronicles.

“Ray Bradbury’s creativity was legendary. Many of his works showed a remarkable ability to imagine the possibilities, outcomes and consequences of space exploration,” said Space Foundation CEO Elliot Pulham. “For many in the space industry, Bradbury was an inspiration to think differently.”
