Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Stanley Kubrick had all models and sets from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) destroyed to prevent their reuse, thus the model of the spaceship Discovery had to be constructed from pictures. See more »
Goofs No pods should be in the pod bay in 2010. The original film showed 3 pods. All were lost. The first was lost with Poole's body. The second was lost when Bowman blew the exploding bolts to enter the airlock. The third transported Bowman into the worm hole/monolith. When the crew enters the pod bay in 2010, one pod is is still sitting in it's storage area. (Although ignored in the movie, this is explained in the book (section4, chapter 24). Dave Bowman is supposed to have retrieved pod #3 on remote while preparing his departure.) See more »
