I looked through the Weyland Investor Information page and I was struck by a few things, so I thought I'd share with the class
First was the increase in life expectancy. Now lets say that Project Prometheus was begun in 2073 and would launch in 2081. Thats 8 years past inception and from when Shaw and Holloway probably got the idea to go with Weyland.
I was then wondering about the stasis tech, that if people slept in Stasis beds, they would in theory, age slower. Eight hours sleep would knock a third of your aging off, meaning someone who was 27 in 2072 would age physically 3 years by 2081, so rather than be 36, they'd be 30.
Not much of a gap to be noticable, but what if you're getting on, like Weyland and have the luxury to spend more and more time in stasis? Weyland may not be as old physically as 93 in this movie!
Also did anyone notice that there is one android employee yet millions are about Weyland Corp and put to work? Looks like Weyland's David, the one on the trip, would be that employee...
And anyone notice the complete lack of David androids in the security branch of Weyland Corp? Theyre physically able so why not put any there?? Theres also a distinct lack of sales in that sector compared to others, that could bite them in this film when they need to defend themselves!
So thats my thoughts on the new page, any opinions guys?
