Part 5, Chapter 36
- Bowman is reporting back to earth on what he's seeing. This is supposed to provide a sense of immediacy and excitement.
- Are you excited yet?
- What if we tell you that there's a…giant slab on Japetus!
- Giant slab! Giant slab!
- Excited now?
- It's a bigger version of the TMA-1 slab.
- Go to the office, go downtown, head to the moon, leave earth's orbit—you just can't get away from the giant slabs.
