2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) confirms that there is nothing like space-travel technology, which is in every nook and cranny of the astronaut’s domain.  Stanley Kubrick meant his film to be artistic—and it is—but not at the expense of technological wonder.

By the year 2001, in 2001, man is even capable of sending a spacecraft into Jupiter’s orbit to investigate extraterrestrial life.  Although they don’t know it, astronaut Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea), et al. are following signals emitted by a monolith on the moon—planted by God!  Kubrick said as much.  I find it valid to say, in fact, that the cosmic baby at the movie’s end is more beautiful than the manmade technology.  One needn’t accept Kubrick’s theology to simply believe that God is benignly interested in the cosmic transformation, whenever he wishes to engineer it, of human beings.
