Spacedock Offers an Extended Tour of the Discovery One
In this Spacedock video, they give a detailed rundown of the design and function of the Discovery One spacecraft from the Stanley Kubrick’s 60s sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey and 2010: The Year We Make Contact.
It never ceases to amaze me that 2001 is over half a century old and it still holds up in its design and feel. Truly remarkable.
