2001 And 2010

The only two science fiction movies or TV shows I can think of that used realistic and plausible ships are 2001: A Space Odyessy and 2010: The Year We Make Contact.

Neither is what I'd call an action film.

Am I the only one upset that we don't even have HAL, let alone manned vessels out to Jupiter?

Aue aue.


  1. Yep. Very upset. Except the Discovery should have huge radiators on it. Otherwise, yeah. Best realistic ships other than "The Right Stuff" and "Apollo 13." Maybe that one with Clint Eastwood where they go rescue someone.

  2. the space ship in space 1999 was pretty cool looking...and it looks like something a space agency would actually build...panzer guy
