Too-close encounters

Just after I posted last night, I curled up in bed again with Encounter with Tiber and got another huge dose of Buzz's unfortunate predictions. He has the stepfather of the narrator hosting a big meeting of billionaires and patrons to whom he is going to be selling his plan for a huge push to commercialize outer space. He has the climax scheduled to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the first moon landing, after a week-long lead-up. His big PR coup is his special guest will be JFK Jr. to honor JFK's memory and moon landing program.

The moon landing was July 20, 1969. In the book, the conference was scheduled to be from July 16-20.

IRL, JFK Jr.'s plane crashed, killing him on July 16, 1999.
