I am going to rant a little about the movie Prometheus. Firstly, I would like to say that I really like sci-fi movies, especially the ones with alien life forms, so I am a little biased. However, that being said the movie was not as great as it could have been if not for many illogical things and other inaccuracies. Lets talk about some things that I thought were stupid/weird. Space travel: as you may know the speed of light is currently considered the fastest speed there is. The closest star system from earth is Alpha Centauri. If you were to travel to that star system at the speed of light it would take you approximately 4.24 years. Yet in the movie they were in cryogenic capsules for 2 years and 4 months. Now obviously they were not flying at the speed of light, they must have traveled a lot faster. So what is the problem you may ask. The problem is that it is the future, shouldn’t they be teleporting or using wormholes to travel? Because right now it just seems that hey were traveling with some regular old technology, but just many times faster than the speed of light. I mean where the 2 years come from? Also why bother using cryogenics fur such short periods
