It's 2010, the Year We Make Contact! I was curious if there was an actual date mentioned in the film 2010 that the film does take place in 2010. I guess the only mention is Dr. Floyd saying that 9 years ago, the Monolith showed up and everything went wacko! I was just curious if the film has a specific date for the flight back to Jupiter to find Discovery 1. I can check the novel of course. I may watch the BD again that day.
