    Get this from a library! odyssey two. [Arthur C Clarke] -- Nine years after the ill-fated Discovery One mission to Jupiter, a joint Soviet-American crew travels. In his science fiction novel Odyssey Two, author Arthur C. Clarke describes a large rectangular slab that has been build by an alien race. Odyssey Two is a science fiction novel by British writer Arthur C. Clarke. It is the sequel to the novel A Space Odyssey, but continues the.

    Plot summary[ edit ] The story is set nine years after the failure of the Discovery One mission to Jupiter. They hypothesize that much of this information is locked away on the now-abandoned Discovery One. The Soviets have an advanced new " Sakharov " drive which will propel them to Jupiter ahead of the American Discovery Two, so Floyd is assigned to the Leonov crew. However, a Chinese space station rockets out of Earth orbit, revealing itself to be the interplanetary spacecraft Tsien , also aimed at Jupiter. The Leonov crewmembers think the Chinese are on a one-way trip due to its speed, but Floyd surmises that due to the large water content of Europa they intend to land there and use the water content to refuel. The Tsien's daring mission ends in failure, when it is destroyed by an indigenous life-form on Europa. The only survivor, Professor Chang radios the story to the Leonov; it is presumed that he dies when his spacesuit air supply runs out. The Leonov survives a dangerous aerobraking around Jupiter and arrives at Discovery. Mission crewmember and HAL 's creator, Dr. Chandra, reactivates the computer to ascertain the cause of his earlier aberrant behaviour.

    Clarke chose to base the book more on the film than on the novel, probably because the film reached a larger audience than any novel ever could. Instead of Discovery's voyage to Saturn, the spaceship was in orbit around Jupiter. Instead of the monlith being located on one of the gas giant's moons, it was in orbit around Io. By moving the action to Jupiter's orbit instead of Saturn's, Clarke was also able to take advantage of the much greater knowledge astronomers have of Jupiter than of Saturn.

    His focus, however, was not on Jupiter itself. As Clarke points out, his space travelers had "come all the way to Jupiter, greatest of planets--and then ignore it.

    His characterization is not particularly deep, but the portraits he paints make the characters likeable. Heywood Floyd presents a reasonable voice, as well as a link to the earlier novel.

    Max Brailovsky and Walter Curnow inject humor into the proceedings. The cold Sivasubramanian Chandrasegarampillai Dr. An apparition of Bowman appears before Floyd, warning him that they must leave Jupiter within 15 days. Floyd has difficulty convincing the rest of the crew at first, but then the monolith vanishes from orbit. The Leonov crew devises a plan to use the Discovery as a " booster rocket ", enabling them to return to Earth ahead of schedule. Unfortunately, HAL and the Discovery will be trapped in Jupiter's orbit, with insufficient fuel to escape.

    The crew are worried that HAL will have the same neuroses on discovering that he will be abandoned yet again, so Chandra must convince HAL that the human crew is in danger. The Leonov crew flees Jupiter as a mysterious dark spot appears on Jupiter and begins to grow. HAL's telescope observations reveal that the "Great Black Spot" is, in fact, a vast population of monoliths, increasing at an exponential rate, which appear to be eating the planet.

    By acting as self-replicating ' von Neumann ' machines, these monoliths increase Jupiter's density until the planet achieves nuclear fusion , becoming a small star. In the novel, this obliterates the primitive life forms inhabiting the Jovian atmosphere, which the Monoliths' controllers had deemed very unlikely to ever achieve intelligence unlike the aquatic life of Europa.

    However, in appreciation for HAL's help, Bowman has the aliens which control the monoliths remove HAL's artificial intelligence from Discovery's computer core and transform him into the same kind of life form as David Bowman, and becomes his companion. Epilogue The book ends with a brief epilogue, which takes place in AD 20, By this time, the Europans have evolved into a species that has developed a primitive civilization, most likely with assistance from a monolith.

    They are not described in detail, though they are said to have "tendril"-like limbs. Though their settlements are concentrated primarily in the hemisphere of Europa which is constantly bathed in Lucifer's rays, some Europans have begun in recent generations to explore the Farside, the hemisphere facing away from Lucifer, which is still covered in ice.

    There they may witness the spectacle of night, unknown on the other side of Europa, when the Cold Sun sets. The Europans who explore the Farside have been carefully observing the night sky and have begun to develop a mythology based on their observations. They correctly believe that Lucifer was not always there. They believe that the Cold Sun was its brother and was condemned to march around the sky for a crime. The Europans also see three other major bodies in the sky.

    After some time, Floyd is speaking to a Russian on board, who, for an instant, sees the Monolith open again, into a Stargate, as David Bowman escapes from the Monolith's dimension back into ours. A sequence of scenes follows the explorations of David Bowman, who has been transformed into a non- corporeal , energy-based life-form, much like the aliens controlling the monoliths.

    During his journey, the avatar of Bowman travels to Earth , making contact with significant individuals from his past: He visits his mother and brushes her hair shortly before she dies , and he appears to his ex-girlfriend on her television screen. In the novel, the aliens are using Bowman as a probe to learn about humankind. He then returns to the Jupiter system to explore beneath the ice of Europa, where he finds aquatic life-forms, and under the clouds of Jupiter, where he discovers gaseous life-forms.

    Both are primitive , but the aliens deem the Europan creatures to have evolutionary potential.

The Europans also see three other major bodies in the sky. One seems to be constantly engulfed in fire, and the other two have lights on them which are gradually spreading.

    These three bodies are the moons Io , Callisto , and Ganymede , the latter two of which are presently being colonised by humans.
