Wall-E Easter Egg - A Space Odyssey
This is actually a dual egg. Both are found right at the beginning of the "Define Earth" chapter, where the Captain is researching various subjects about Earth.
Behind him, there is a small bookcase that holds his globe. But located on the shelf above this, there is a space helmet, which resembles the helmets found in 2001: A Space Odyssey, only white. Though people may argue that it could be any kind of space helmet, it seems to have a slightly pointed top like those in 2001. Also, AUTO bears a slight resemblance to HAL (both in eye and following a secret directive) from the movie, so I don't see why they wouldn't put something else in like it.
Also, behind that helmet appears to be a small model of the Sputnik satellite.
