Predicts Conventions in Space by Year 2000 (Chicago Tribune, 1965)

The June 15, 1965 edition of the Chicago Tribune contained a great prediction from a Chicago real estate broker about the year 2000:

By the year 2000, business conventions will be held at interplanetary "cosmotels," to which most delegates will travel in their own family "volkscapsules" or "satellacs," Walter P. Kuehnle, a Chicago real estate broker said yesterday. He addressed the congress of 19-nation International Real Estate federation in Brussels, Belgium.

I'm interested in learning whether the imaginative terms above were the invention of Mr. Kuehnle. If he came up with the word "volkscapsules," I want to be his new best friend.
