** To initiate sustained hydrogen fusion, a gas giant like Jupiter would need to increase its mass by 75 times. The only way the monoliths could just "turn on" Jupiter would be to increase its core density to the point of fusion. Problem is, without the extra mass on top to compress the core down, the monoliths would need to somehow keep Jupiter's core compressed ''permanently''.

** The reference to using "nuclear detonators" is a reference to Hyams' earlier film {{Film/Outland}}, where a missing nuclear detonator was mentioned in a daily briefing Creator/SeanConnery received.

* NoNewFashionsInTheFuture: Mostly averted; the clothing in the movie is similar to real 2010 fashion. Bowman's widow wears a ''{{Flashdance}}''-style off-the-shoulder T-shirt, which came back into fashion over the past few years so it's justified here.

* BigDamnHero: Believe it or not, [[spoiler: '''''HAL''''']] is this. When Our Heroes are preparing to leave Jupiter, he asks Chandra why they are leaving early. Chandra tries to talk his way around it, but [[spoiler: HAL]] susses out that they are in danger, and he asks Chandra to come clean. Chandra decides to spill it: yes, they're in danger, and if [[spoiler: HAL]] doesn't make a HeroicSacrifice, everyone on board the ''Leonov'' will probably be killed. [[spoiler: HAL]] thinks it over for about two seconds, and says, "I understand." When Chandra offers to stay behind with him, [[spoiler: HAL]] basically says, it's okay, we're good, get going. He later reveals that ''he's afraid to [[DyingAlone die there,]]'' but he does it anyway.

Dr. Heywood Floyd (Roy Scheider), the former director of the National Space Administration, who took the blame for the failure of the ''Discovery'', is tapped to go on the mission along with two other U.S. scientists -- engineer Dr. Walter Curnow (Creator/JohnLithgow), who is tasked with boarding ''Discovery'' and restoring its systems; and computer scientist Dr. R. Chandra (Bob Balaban), who designed the H.A.L. 9000 and is seeking to answer the question of why it malfunctioned and tried to kill its crew.

* {{Tagline}}: "The Year We Make Contact" is actually a tagline -- the title as displayed in the movie itself is simply "2010".

* ActivationSequence: We have a ''re''-activation sequence as Doctor Chandra brings the HAL 900 computer back online after he was deactivated by Dave Bowman, reinserting some of the crystal memory cards, testing HAL's functionality reinserting some more until HAL is operational once again.
