Temperature is monitored at all times...

So says the large letters hidden behind both a oversized piece of meat (most of a cow or a pig possibly) and the proportionally tiny shadow figures...
Telling us in no uncertain terms that it is chill in here...

Like many scenes in the movie it does not bare much scrutiny very well, are we excepted to just casually accept that whole entire animal carcasses are shipped over the astronomical distance between Earth and io (between 528 and 931 million kilometres from what i could see) and then are put in a large walk in freezer?

Seems a very costly exercise and doubly unnecessary from the point of view of how much waste the people eating this would generate, I mean there are many reasons why astronauts have powdered ice cream and a mostly liquid diet...

That aside even actually having a freezer (with temperature being monitored) seems rather ridiculous, given the surrounding environment it would be more of a case of not actually having much (or any) heating than actually chilling anything as space is rather cold so why waste energy freezing something when you could for most intents and purposes just bung it outside?

I suppose this is the part where one thinks its best not to poke at the holes, lest an abyss beckons..

Anyways something not quite so cool is happening in the freezer, find out what starting next week
