** In the novel, Iapetus is depicted as a dark moon with a light oval on one hemisphere (in the exact center of which is the Monolith). The Voyager and Cassini missions have now shown that it's actually a ''light'' moon with a ''dark'' oval on one hemisphere.

** Also worthy of note is that Kubrick approached the rock group Pink Floyd to do the music to the film (as well as the later Clockwork Orange), but they declined. Roger Waters later said not scoring 2001 was one of his biggest regrets. (Supposedly "Echoes" syncs up to the third act of 2001, try it out.)

* PropRecycling: Deliberately averted. Kubrick had all the sets, special effects models, and design notes destroyed after filming was complete, to prevent them being reused in low-budget B-movies. The production crew for ''2010'' had to rebuild ''everything'' by examining the film itself, frame-by-frame. A deliberate case of NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup.
** It didn't work. Several models (rebuilt or maybe the same film clip) have been used. ''Series/{{Space 1999}}'' used the same rocket landing site on the Moon.
** Bowman's spacepod [[ShoutOut can be seen in the background]] of Watto's scrapyard in ''StarWars Episode I: ThePhantomMenace''. Interestingly, the book ''Inside the Worlds of Star Wars: Episode I'' notes it as a "repair and maintenance pod of unknown origin".
** The model for Saturn was used for ''Film/SilentRunning''.

* PermanentPlaceholder: The movie uses a score made out of public domain classical music. It was intended as a placeholder score, but Kubrick ended up preferring it and leaving it in. The original score written by Alex North was eventually released in 1993.

** Kubrick required the compositing work to be done by a team of British animators painting traveling mattes by hand frame-by-frame to mask out each element, rather than using bluescreen. When production ended, most of them signed onto ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'' in order to work on something colorful after spending two years painting little black blobs.
