Some of the more notable works of science fiction generated during that time borrowed facts from real world developments in science and technology, including developments in computer synthesized speech. The most notable of these was the film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, released in 1968. The story revolves around mysterious monoliths that appear at different points in man’s history—on earth, the moon, and eventually orbiting Jupiter during a manned space mission. During that mission to Jupiter, the ship’s computer—the Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic (HAL) 9000 Computer—controls all ships functions, though under the supervision of two astronauts.
