Discovery One’s EVA Pod: Open the Pod bay doors, HAL.

I knew as I was writing the other day the GD LEM mock-up/simulator post I would sin sooner than later. And so it happened yesterday night, the umpteenth time I’ve watched Kubrick’s masterpiece.

To me those spacesuits designed by Harry Lange are as unrivalled as the movie itself. Sadly, Bowman lacks his helmet when he needed most. That helmet was the best feature of the whole suit.

  2. 2001 is a Kubrick masterpiece indeed! I first saw the film in 1968 in the Metropol Theatre , Detroit. Super Panavision 70mm film and 6 track sound, the experience will stay with me forever.
