A detailed examination of filming models from the movie 2010: Odyssey 2 (aka 2010: The Year We Make Contact in the US). Author Jean-Marc Deschamps (who wrote the special edition of Dixième Planète on the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey) was given access to the models as they were being restored for auction. He took hundreds of photos of them which, when combined with period photos of the movie’s production, form a complete record of the models from this film.

As a bonus, Jean-Marc secured an interview with lead model maker on the film, Mark Stetson. He also presents a somewhat disturbing glimpse at what remains of the first version of the "Starchild" mannequin (not the one used in filming).
