No one really cared about the specifics of sound in space in Alien. Suspension of disbelief = enjoyment.
Shit, the Nostromo explodes three times. :P
And Ridley's explanation was three is a good number  :P Alien tends to get a free pass compared to the other films' lack of scientific 'integrity'.
'Alien' is chock-full of scientifically-implausible stuff, anyone who thinks it was trying to be "hard sci-fi" is kidding themselves. The characters are relatable people, the sets look appropriately lived-in and "real", but it's still not "hard sci-fi".

Very few movies are hard sci-fi -- most of them make concessions on some level for artistic/storytelling reasons, and rightly so.

Well no, the Nostromo explodes once, and the refinery presumably in two stages. Insofar as the suspension of disbelief goes in Alien, that's the least of many possible examples.
The first explosion was kind of blindingly huge, I doubt the refinery even survived that first blast, let alone the second one. :P

I posted this in detail over on my Weyland Investor blog http://weylandinvestors.tumblr.com/ but I'll try sum it up here.
Basically, we should be getting something Project Prometheus related through that Facebook app this Wednesday. Their tweets especially seem to hint at them being interconnected.

So 'Storm Rifles' are around a century before 'Pulse Rifles'. Atmosphere Processors look identical to the ones in Aliens despite being a century earlier...and looks like all the credit goes to Weyland.
