In his book from 1973, "Rendevouz With Rama", there are some interesting dates, perhaps worth digging into.
Here is a scan from the first page of the book.
What strikes me are the dates.
First we have June 30th 1908 - which is known for the Tunguska Event - the "meteorite" crashing in Tunguska, Siberia.
Then, we have February 12th 1947. It's also a historical date, a fireball and meteorite fall seen in eastern Siberia.
1947 is also known for the UFO Roswell incident.
And then there is another date on the same page: September 11th. The year is 2077 (it's a future scenario book), but yet the date bothers me.
Is there a connection?
Siberia is also interesting, not only because of the Tunguska Event, but also because it's the place which supposedly caused the Ice Age, because of
yet another supposed meteorite impact. Also, because of the Stalin labour camps and rumored human experiments in Siberia. More that 20 million humans
died in those Siberian Stalin labour camps.
And hen we have yet another "meteorite" crash in Siberia, in 1947. The same year as the Roswell UFO event. Is there a connection?
And why does Arthur C. Clarke chose that specific date, September 11th?
