Isaac Asimov dies. Few are aware of the real circumstances of Isaac Asimov's death today. It will not be until Janet Asimov publishes It's Been a Good Life in 2001 that it is officially revealed that Asimov had contracted AIDS from tainted blood during a surgical procedure in 1983.

Isaac Asimov was born in Russia, but he grew up in Brooklyn, NY, after his family emigrated when he was just three years old. He was internationally famous as a science fiction author, with his Robot and Foundation stories being among readers' favorites. However, he also wrote massive amounts of material on science and religion — mostly for non-specialists and lay people.
