Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Nine years after the ill-fated Discovery One mission to Jupiter, a joint Soviet-American crew travels to the planet to investigate the mysterious monolith orbiting the planet, the cause of the earlier mission's failure--and the disappearance of David Bowman. The crew includes Heywood Floyd, the lone survivor from the previous mission, and Dr. Chandra, the creator of HAL. What they find is no less than an unsettling alien conspiracy--surrounding the evolutionary fate of indigenous life forms on Jupiter's moon Europa, as well as that of the human species itself.
