Good morning, James. How are you feeling?
Jim Preston: Wait. What?
Wake-up Hologram: It's perfectly normal to feel confused. You just spent 120 years in suspended animation.
Jim Preston: What?
Wake-up Hologram: It's okay, James.
Jim Preston: It's Jim.
Wake-up Hologram: Jim.
When discussing hibernation pods, Aurora says that the company has made thousands of interstellar flights without a single hibernation pod malfunction. Earlier, when Jim tried to send a message back to Earth, he is told by the computer that it would take around 80 years for a round-trip message. The home company on Earth would therefore have needed many thousands of years to communicate enough with thousands of interstellar flights to not only verify that they reached their destination, but also how ell everything functioned. Not only that, but that time is expressed only as the time relative to the space travelers, but much more time passes on Earth relative to the space travelers, according to Einstein's Theory of Relativity, since they are traveling at half the speed of light (or at least they are in the time frame during the voyage that the movie takes place, but since it's not halfway yet and the ship is still accelerating, it must reach even faster speeds).
