"Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick's " A Space Odyssey," and some folks still don't realize the baby at the end symbolizes man's unceasing lust for boobies" SPOILER ALERT. /Someone may not have watched the movie all the way to the end.   Note: all of the images in this post come from Douglas Trumbull’s website.. Trumbull was Special Photographic Effects Supervisor on A Space Odyssey and, much like Kubrick, was/is a master of his craft. Some of the greatest special effects of the 70’s, 80’s, and ‘90s came from this man (including Back to the Future The Ride!) His website itself is a spectacular resource; I highly.
