I know that it was released in 1968, at a time when space was seen as the next frontier. I know that as early as 1950, with the movie Destination Moon, people had been treated to a realistic movie about a moon landing. Space must have been very much on the minds of people at the time. The original Star Trek TV series debuted in 1966 but the original motion picture only came in 1979. So a space movie would have been highly popular.
But now it just falls flat. Space can't sell a movie anymore.

Yes, because obviously 2001 was about SPACE. :roll:
