A model of the Pan Am Space Clipper ‘Orion’ from Stanley Kubrik’s film 2001 A Space Odyssey. I was 11 when I first saw this film and it still haunts me. The famous docking sequence with Space Station 1 200 miles above the Earth, to Johann Strauss II’s best-known waltz, The Blue Danube and made without CGI is still for me one of the most beautiful things I have ever experienced.
