Arthur C Clarke was of course a member of the British Interplanetary Society, a group of writers and engineers who were closely involved in the early British Space Program and Blue Streak Program in the 1950s/1960s.

The Charity EP Tim mentions is here: http://www.musicglue.net/purereasonrevolution/ and he has been kind enough to post his intimidating 13 pages of notes here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UrXvqMlrIA_N6fUy-BwlM_lUpNeuHUo99tDP-qyXNPw/edit
He is also on twitter @tetrachangel and Psycomedia is a quick google away.
