In Prometheus Shaw calls the MedPod the Pauline MedPod, so I don't really know if that means Pauline makes or developed the MedPods with some kind of help from Weyland Corp (because the MedPod is on their website) or if Pauline is just part of the name.--Toa Quarax (talk) (Contribs) 01:16, July 30, 2013 (UTC)

The bottom of the picture in the Gallery says "manufactured by Weyland" and does not mention Pauling anywhere, so I guess it's just part of the name. Also according to the original script for Prometheus the name is "Pauling" and not "Pauline".--Toa Quarax (talk) (Contribs) 04:18, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

Does anyone know if the subtitles for Prometheus spell Pauling differently?--Toa Quarax (talk) (Contribs) 03:26, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

Never mind the display inside the pod says "Pauling Med-Pod".--Toa Quarax (talk) (Contribs) 04:14, October 4, 2013 (UTC)
I'd speculate that 'Pauling' is in honor of Linus Pauling, a Nobel Prize Winner. Griffalo (talk) (Contribs) 17:04, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
According to Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report, it's named after its fictional designer, an "A. Pauling". Haven't got around to adding it to the page yet.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:16, November 30, 2015 (UTC)
