Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
"A daring romp through the solar system and a worthy successor to 2001." *Carl Sagan Nine years after the disastrous Discovery mission to Jupiter in 2001, a joint U.S.-Soviet expedition sets out to rendezvous with the derelict spacecraft *to search the memory banks of the mutinous computer HAL 9000 for clues to what went wrong . . . and what became of Commander Dave Bowman. Without warning, a Chinese expedition targets the same objective, turning the recovery mission into a frenzied race for the precious information Discovery may hold about the enigmatic monolith that orbits Jupiter. Meanwhile, the being that was once Dave Bowman *the only human to unlock the mystery of the monolith *streaks toward Earth on a vital mission of its own . . . "Clarke deftly blends discovery, philosophy, and a newly acquired sense of play." *Time "2010 is easily Clarkes' best book in over a decade." *The San Diego Tribune
Sequel to: 2001, a space odyssey.
"A Del Rey book."
