Hydrosphere absorption, does that indicate that the Engineers intended to dump this into a planet's water supply, causing all life to effectively disintegrate within a few months?
But disintegrate into what? Too bad they totally fobbed what Holloway would've disintegrated into... and what is the relation to what the sacrificial engineer drank? It also appears that inhaling it has the same effect as topical exposure, or rubbing it all over your tattooed, mohawked head.
This is very cool, but the only answers... are more questions!
I'm also tempted to go off on some long, exhausting tirade about why such a sophisticated, dangerous mutagen was housed in a bogus old-balls stone temple looking complex and not an extremely advanced laboratory with several layers of powerful safety systems. I guess the advanced flute technology couldn't create clean rooms?
Just kidding, I'm enjoying all of this stuff..
Just wish it were in the bloody film.
