Close enough

Aw: the landing site for the Mars Curiosity (which just took its first test drive!) will be named after Ray Bradbury. The Curiosity landed on August 6th, but NASA waited to announce the site's name until August 22nd, which would have been Bradbury's 92nd birthday.

If you recall, we mentioned in Mr. Bradbury's obituary that he had always wanted to be buried on Mars. That hasn't happened (yet), but I expect he would find this a pretty great compromise.
