**HAL-9000**: Dr. Chandra, I detect strong vocal stress patterns. Is there a problem?

**Dr. Chandra**: No, Hal; the mission is proceeding normally. Can you analyze the image on monitor circuit #2?

**HAL-9000**: Yes. There is a circular object near the equator. It is 22,000 kilometers in diameter. It is comprised of rectangular objects.

**Dr. Chandra**: How many?

**HAL-9000**: 1,355,000, plus or minus 1,000.

**Dr. Chandra**: And what is the proportion of the objects in question?

**HAL-9000**: 1 by 4 by 9.

**Dr. Chandra**: Do you recognize these objects?

**HAL-9000**: Yes. They are identical in size and shape to the object you call the Monolith. 10 minutes to ignition. All systems nominal.
