Moving around in weightlessness, 2001 and 2012

In the film “2001: A Space Odyssey” (1968) by Stanley Kubrick, flight attendant while weightless, walks on Velcro-covered walls.

The experts consultants of the film felt that space travelers would need to be anchored to something in order to move around.

In our days in a spaceship, astronauts just float from one point to another and only in some cases there is the use of Velcro.
