Stanley Kubrik's 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey used drawings and graphics solutions from Nebo Zovyot (the original Russian film Roger Corman re-edited to become Battle Beyond the Stars), created by the fiction artist Yuri Shvets.
At the beginning of the movie (11:17) South Hemis has launched a rocket going to a space station carrying two astronauts. One of them is Dr Albert Gordon. Dr Gordon's wife Ruth also works on the project at ground control. Just after the launch Ruth is shown writing in what is likely a log book and at the top of the page the header reads North Hemis Space Agency instead of South Hemis.
