2001 è un grande inizio, 2010 è un degno prosieguo. L'avvio della trama è addirittura più travolgente di quello di 2001, e ce ne vuole (secondo me, almeno)!

Surely it needs far less avante garde knowledge of astronomy, but is very heartwarming , shedding tears of many during the time of cold war and before the pulldown of the Berlin Wall.--------the cooperation of USA and USSR, utterly impossible those years.
