The official Prometheus website, Weylandindustries.com, has been updated with several new sections and some very cool pictures of vehicles, space suits, futuristic buildings and more. There’s a couple of very ‘familiar’  security items in there as well. The new sections include security, electronics, terraforming, energy, transportation and health. The quality of the art is very good. Make sure to check them out below:

all the products line are open.

I sense some similarity between the bioreplicator pod and the ampules.

The Weyland Storm Rifle is a goddamn Pulse Rifle!!!!  Albeit a predecessor, but I am totally geeking out over this.  Now, do we get that awesome sound effect?

I know this is silly, but in the realm of canon, I wish they'd thought up of a more pre-Aliens look to the atmospheric processor or rifle.  Hard to believe the AP is identical after 80 years.

"Fabricated from heat-resistant micro-perforated titanium, the Storm weighs 1.3kgs (empty of ammunition). With unrivaled technology like satellite-guided target detection, the Storm can track and assess a threat at over 300 miles away."

Now I'm no firearms expert, but that just sounds absolutely ridiculous.

Weyland’s energy sector products power billions of homes, schools and businesses on Earth and its 63 colonies

The Weyland process of terraforming is uniquely successful. We explore each new planet discovered in the habitable zone of distant stars. Thousands of Weyland engineers and scientists are then dispatched to the newly discovered solar system. After setting up a temporary base, the planetary engineers spend months exhaustively testing the seismic stability, core layer densities and the soundness of the planet's ionosphere, noting weather patterns and pressure fluctuations.

If the conditions are favorable in most respects, Weyland employees claim a new territory in the name of the company, and only then begin constructing an Atmosphere Processor to initiate terraforming. The total process can take anywhere from 5 to 20 years depending on conditions

so by 2080-2090 earth has managed to colonize 63 planets. and for each colony to be established it takes 5 to 20 years. that means colonizing has started at least 20 years prior to the date of the movie.

i really hate the timeline. they could have made it more grounded in reality. i can't even imagine the resources needed to colonize 60 planets, the money, the man power, how hard would be to build those giant terraforming stations. and all by a private company. this is wishfull thinking at best
