DISCOVERY IN SPACE.
Once again the Pod makes its way to the big dish antenna, this time it is Poole carrying out the task.
Bowman is seated at the Command Module.
Bowman monitors Poole inside the Pod, on a video screen.
Pool, holding the A.O. unit, exits the Pod and jets himself to the base of the antenna. Suddenly the Pod begins rotating, turning towards Poole.
As the Pod rotates, the Pod-Arms extend outward.
With its Pod-Arms fully expanded, the Pod rushes toward Poole
CUT TO: The camera focuses in on the red lens on the front of the Pod.
Inside the Command Module, Bowman has heard nothing. He sees a shocking vision unfold on the video screen. Poole had no time to utter a sound.
IN SPACE: Tumbling off into space, we see Poole frantically trying to reconnect a severed tube on his suit.
Bowman rushes out of the Command Module.
In space, Poole is no longer struggling, his body silently tumbling away into space. The Pod is also seen hurtling into the void.
