This is perfectly true. I use the scene as desktop wallpaper and although i have not seen 2001 for a long time and it is patially obstructed, I can still recognize the details of the pod's bay window.

This egg is definitely true. By chance I saw 2001 on the same day as I saw Ep 1 recently and the pod is clearly visible when Qui Gon and Watto first walk out through the junkyard. Although, the picture mentioned above doesnt show the pod at all. The pod is a small round transport with two arms that was used by the two astronauts in 2001 to fix part of the ship from the outside.
