Synopsis:
This documentary looks at the production and impact of '2001: A Space Odyssey', the landmark 1968 Stanley Kubrick epic that has inspired generations of science-fiction fans, film-makers, visual effects specialists and pretty much everyone ever involved with NASA's space effort, then or now. '2001 And Beyond' compares Kubrick's and, co-screenwriter and science-fiction novelist, Arthur C. Clarke's '2001: A Space Odyssey' with the year that came and went. There is commentary on the future we are about to enter, and the one we have missed, from scientists Freeman Dyson and Richard Terrile, sci-fi authors Arthur C.
Clarke, Larry Niven, Rob Sawyer and Harlan Ellison, lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin, just to name a few. Finally we will invite our guests to speculate on the next 33 years from the most basic such as "Will we ever achieve space flight using true suspended animation?" to the most profound, like "When and if will we achieve anything like the burst of human evolution seen at the climax of the film?"
