Build the Discovery XD-1 as seen in Stanley Kubrick's sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey, which was released in 1968 and won an Academy Award for best visual effects.
When a monolithic object of extraterrestrial origin is discovered in orbit around Jupiter, the manned deep space exploration spacecraft, Discovery X-Ray Delta One, is sent to investigate and collect data related to the mysterious artifact.
Discovery is powered by a gaseous nuclear fission plasma reactor, which is separated from the spherical crew habitation module by a long spine consisting of a series of modular containers. A massive communications array is mounted near the center of the spine. An onboard HAL9000 sentient computer controls the entire ship with assistance from two of the crew members.
