The first time you saw the arrival of Dr. Heywood Floyd ...

Post by ChrisGreaves »

... at the inter-lunar hub (remember the dart-shaped rocket getting ready to pas-de-deux with the space station?), did you ever think that twenty years later (well, 2021-2001, right?), you'd come in from barrowing compost around the yard and stop watching out of boredom waiting for the hatch to open?
Just askin' ...
Cheers :starstruck:

IMHO, the truth is more beautiful than fiction.

Agreed.
I think that the fiction provided us with a very good gap-filler while we waited.
The Clarke/Kubrick pair scored pretty well, some of their failed predictions notwithstanding.

I was struck by the similarity (equal quality?) of the images, but on reflection (nice one Chris!) it's pretty easy to make jet-black look like jet-black, right?
Cheers
