Seems to me that time, not fluid, is what's important to making the fuel.
i thought they made a point that it took them 20 years to find that much fluid. they found a little bit of fluid outside their shanty which they then processed and added to fluid they already had which finally gave them enough to operate the module. at least that's how i interpreted it.
Either way, I think we can agree that this, like other plot points, went woeful underexplained.
yet somehow despite everything being underexplained, the movie felt really drawn out. i dont feel like anything really happened in the first half an hour, i was just sitting there bored waiting for some action or something to peak my interest.
