Dwayne's Computers That Byte


HAL 9000: HAL (Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic computer) was the computer that ran the spacecraft Discovery One in Arthur C. Clarke's and Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. It is also the computer that killed off the entire crew of Discovery One save for one David Bowman. When asked about this oversight HAL only had this to say, "Sorry about that, Dave."
