Love the size comparisons, angle and the 'vastness' of everything here, including the feeling that a very important and historical journey is about to take place.

Great emotional piece.

What an epic picture!! That would be no detriment to the film if ever added.

Just jawdropping!

Oh man.... I'd LOVE to see a 2001 "special edition". If only Kubrick were still around to helm such a project?

Thanks! I had a lot of fun doing these 2001 subjects. It's fun to try to expand the Clarke/Kubrick vision while still staying faithful to it.

"O.K., Hal, anything we need to know before we head out?"
"Not than I can tell you, Dave."
"That's fine... why is there a water leak in your memory room?"

This is a good one, is Jupiter too far out of position for the photo?
