If he could celebrate it today, he would be 100..

July 7 is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Robert Anson Heinlein. In Kansas City the Heinlein Centennial will celebrate his writings and feature talks by the NASA administrator Michael Griffin as well as Heinlein scholars and enthusiasts. Heinlein is the closest thing that the American pro-space movement has to a patron saint.

Oh well, he is of the older generation...But, one of my favorite books by him is "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress". Similar to the Botany Bay thing, but in the future....
