In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth. A man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.
The design reference for the Elysium central server reboot screen is an Award BIOS from a Gigabyte motherboard with an AMD processor. The years and brand names have been changed but not the layout, and the "Wyrd" and "Oracle" drives still connect with an IDE interface.
In the late 21st century Earth was diseased, polluted and vastly overpopulated.
Every time an 'illegal' from earth wants to enter a house on Elysium they are shown having to break a window or door to gain access. However, in such a perfect, i.e. want free (and, incidentally. heavily monitored) society there would be no need for locks on any home.
In the soundtrack part of the end titles it says:
"Piano Concerto No. 8 in C minor 'Pathetique' - Adagio Cantabile Written by Ludwig van Beethoven"
L. v. Beethoven wrote only five piano concertos (his eighth piano sonata is titled "Pathetique" however).
