Jay Weidner on Stanley Kubrik, Arthur C Clarke, The Moon Landings, NASA & Saturn

The tiny moon in the picture above is actually Mimas (of Star wars death star fame)  but because I was confused with Kubrick movie 2001 space odyssey and Arthur C Clarke's landing on Saturn (it's gaseous how would it do that?) I now know it was Iapetus that was originally in the book but was changed to a moon of Jupiter by Warner brothers. 

Why would anyone would care? Well Saturn is Saturnalia and the studios got nervous about how much Kubrick was revealing. I've posted part two of the interview because it's just so interesting and gets straight to the sizzling bacon though I'm sure you'll start at the beginning if it grabs your attention. It did mine.
