** This also occurs after HAL knowingly performs the maneuver that will save the Leonov crew [[HeroicSacrifice at the cost of his own existence]]. This could be seen as redeeming him for the murder of the Discovery's original crew.

** Expanded on in the novel, which explains that if the crew miscalculated, the ship would have been "hammered flat by a wall of gas". The crew would have died without even having time to react.

* OurGraphicsWillSuckInTheFuture: While control panel graphics in ''2001'' were animated by hand and projected on to flatscreens, which gave them more of a timeless quality, the graphics here are typical 1980s 8-bit graphics with noticeably lower resolution than in ''2001''. All of the monitors in ''2010'' are [=CRTs=], even the ones on ''Discovery'' [[{{Retcon}} which had been flatscreens before.]]

* ConspicuousCG: Averted -- Jupiter was rendered on the same Cray X-MP used on ''Film/TheLastStarfighter'', but the effect is very subtle.

* {{Zeerust}}: The second manned mission to Jupiter is launched in time to make it by 2010. The first one had an AI, but in this one the Soviets use [[OurGraphicsWillSuckInTheFuture CRTs]] while the Americans have flat-screen displays. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in the novel by the fact that they intentionally used small autonomous computer systems to run the ship to avoid the same catastrophe that befell ''Discovery''.
