I watched a re-run of the 1968 film the other day and it was still entertaining but how did the the 34 year old Arthur C. Clarke and Kubrick prophesy hold up? Not too good. I think they had the Space Shuttle technology right but who would guess that it would be scrapped in 2010? They did the anti-gravity stuff pretty well but the magnetic shoes didn't quite work on the commercial shuttle and the fake gravity on the gigantic Space Station was never explained. The sad fact is that it is too expensive to ever consider a commercial Space Station much less business trips to the Moon.
