About Monolith (Space Odyssey) in brief
In Arthur C. Clarke’s Space Odyssey, Monoliths are machines built by an unseen extraterrestrial species. In the series of novels, three Monolith’s are discovered in the Solar System by hominids and humans. The response of the characters to their discovery drives the plot of the series. It also influences the fictional history of the novels, particularly by encouraging humankind to progress with technological development and space travel. The aliens left behind three monoliths to observe and enact their plan to encourage humans to pursue technology and spaceTravel. The name Tycho Magnetic Anomaly-1 refers to the strong magnetic field found somewhere in the lunar Crater Tycho by an American scientific satellite. Astronauts find that this magnetic anomaly is caused by an alien Monolith buried about 15 meters below the surface of the moon. In 2010: Odyssey Two, the Russian crewmen of the spaceship Alexei Leonov refer to TMA-2 as \”Zagadka\”. In the novel, when the Monolith is excavated and examined, it is found to be a black cuboid whose sides extend to 15 meters above the surface. Clarke suggests that this sequence or ratio extends the three known spatial dimensions into much higher dimensions. Some scientists speculate that its magnetic field came from large currents of electric currents circulating in a superconductors system in the solar system – Iapetus, Jupiter, and Europa. In some novels, some scientists speculate the powerful magnetic field comes from a single burst of radio waves – aimed at Jupiter in the motion picture and aimed at the super-conductors in the film The Godfather.
In other novels, the magnetic field is aimed at direct sunlight, but after exposure to direct sunlight and exposure to its exposure to sunlight, it disappears immediately in the novel and in the movie The Lord of the Galaxy. The first Monolith appears at the beginning of the story, set in prehistoric times. It is discovered by a group of hominid and somehow triggers a considerable shift in evolution, starting with the ability to use tools and weaponry. It’s later revealed that thousands of other monolithS exist elsewhere in the Sun. The extraterrestrial Species that built the Monolithics is never described in much detail, but some knowledge of its existence is given to Dave Bowman after he is transported by the stargate to the \”cosmic zoo\”, as detailed in the 1968 novel 2001: A Space Odyssey and its 1982 sequel, 2010: Odyssey Two. The existence of this species is only hypothesized by the rest of humanity, but it is obvious because the Monestone was immediately identified as an artifact of non-human origin. The Firstborn were in many ways physically different from human beings, though from another point of view they were fundamentally the same: they were creatures made oflesh and blood. They were mortal. When they encountered a living world that had features in favor of the evolution of intelligent life, they left behind the Monhemoths as remote observers that were also capable of taking a variety of actions according to the wishes of their creators.
