2001 fiction set to be science fact? NASA boffin mulls artificial intelligence to watch over the lunar Gateway


Re: Workaround


But they DID put a handle on the outside (of Discovery) - that's how Dave Bowman was able to re-enter after HAL refused to open the pod bay door (using the pods "extendable" arm to turn the handle to open the access door).

What would have been better was if Bowman had taken his helmet with him, when he took the pod to try and save Frank Poole. Health & Safety would take a dim view of his actions.
