Famous '2001' Spaceship to Go on Display

After decades in private hands, a spaceship from the classic film "2001: A Space Odyssey" will go on display for the first time to the public.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the group that presents the Oscars, purchased the spacecraft at auction Saturday for $344,000. The academy will display the ship in its museum of movie history, scheduled to open in 2017 in Los Angeles.
According to the auction house, the spaceship is one of the few sets left from the 1968 film.
