This is a new installment in Rob Caswell's and my series of illustrations based on the NOVEL 2010: Odyssey Two. After being galvanized into action by the mysterious apparition of Dave Bowman, and the disappearance of the enormous "zagadka" or monolith, orbiting Jupiter, the crew of the Alexi Leonov scramble to improvise a connection between their ship and Discovery. They will use the remaining fuel in Discovery to boost the Leonov in order to begin their journey back to Earth earlier than planned.
