* ScienceMarchesOn: When Bowman is reflecting on the possibility of life in the Saturn system in ''2001'', he quickly dismisses Titan as a possibility because of its "thin envelope" of an atmosphere. It has since been discovered that Titan's atmosphere is even thicker than Earth's.

** A common joke in the 31st Century goes as follows:
--> '''Setup''' - Would you trust your children with a dinosaur?

* {{Novelization}}: Technically, ''2001'' is a novelization of the film, although being based on an early version of the screenplay it contains many changes (Discovery goes to a different planet, for example, and the book ends with [[spoiler: World War III breaking out on earth]].)

* MoreThanThreeDimensions: The first novel explicates that the Monolith has sides in a proportion of 1:4:9, the squares of the first three integers. Then it suggests the Monolith extends in more dimensions, presumably by squares.
--> "And how naive to have imagined that the series ended at this point, in only three dimensions!"
