Top Ten Space Exploration Lessons Learned from Watching Prometheus

**SPOILER ALERT**
  1. While exploring an unknown planet, always wear your helmet. Especially with dead alien bodies scattered around.
  2. If team members are trapped overnight in an alien ship, have someone stay up to watch their helmet cam footage.
  3. If said team members mysteriously die overnight, have someone rewind and watch their helmet cam footage (at least before sending more people inside, also without helmets).
  4. Don’t split the party.
  5. If you happen to get lost inside a spaceship, and it has already been thoroughly scanned, look at your map.
  6. Flamethrowers are not the first weapon of choice in space.
  7. Axes are even less useful—at least against the ancient aliens which created the human race and the newer squid-aliens you birthed from your own body.
  8. Make sure your medical pods are equipped with procedures for both genders.
  9. Never accept drinks from a robot.
  10. If you launch out on an exploratory mission to question and challenge your creators–don’t name your ship Prometheus.
