This is a compilation of early conceptual storyboards for the "entering the stargate" sequence from the finale of Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey." In this early concept the Discovery came upon a massive monolith many miles in length in the space outside of Jupiter. The Discovery went to the "top" of the monolith where there was an opening which the entire ship began to descend into, emerging on Jupiter, or some other form of other worldly civilization. These storyboards were experiments in trying to discover what Kubrick wanted -- or didn't want.
