Fifty years since 2001: A Space Odyssey was released - doesn't time fly!
Knowledge is a deadly friend, if no-one sets the rules
The fate of all mankind, I see, is in the hands of fools

Star Wars creator Lucas described 2001 as "the first time people really took science-fiction seriously".
El Reg has an article about 2001.



Planet of the Apes was released the same year - no contest!
