**Well, keep in mind that IRL, Aircraft mechanics have to know how to drive any plane they're qualified to fix (to be able to move it to/from the hangar), read all controls and meters, and so on, even if they're technically not qualified to fly. For a spacecraft, a ship engineer would probably be required to fully understand how to fly anything from a shuttle to a planet cracker, at the very least to be capable of moving it to a hangar or repair facility for heavy-duty jobs, so for a 200 year old ship, Isaac would be the most qualified pilot simply due to the diversity of his training and expertise.

** Alternatively they might have planned to make it down there with the ship in one piece, as having it break apart at any point would have been instant death. They're lucky they survived as far as they can, as the stuff they suffered has caused terrestrial jets to kill all occupants onboard, and they're coming in from orbit. They probably wanted to bunker down in the ship (which clearly has full life support and atmospheric control) while Isaac and Carver went out looking for suitable supplies. They just never expected that they would survive, but without an intact ship.

** There's implications that Tau Volantis is in fact far colder than the terran arctic due to the Machine artifically freezing everything. The Arctic Survival suits might have been specially developed to combat this, as Tim and Sam can take off their helmets for extended periods of time in the open without adverse effects.

** It's explicitly stated throughout the franchise that humanity doesn't have enough resources to go around anymore. The somatic gel is a chemical that would be easy to mass-produce, but tungsten is a natural material, so it's probably really hard to get any large amount of it.

* Why does everyone immediately assume "Turn it off" is instructions leading to a good thing? It was written in Marker Script by an admiral who lost her mind to the Marker. EVERYTIME IN THIS SERIES when there are hallucinations telling you to do stuff it is because it wants bad things to happen.I understand in the first game, Issac was already not in his right mind and did not yet understand the nature of the marker. Even in the second it is not clear till the climax that the image of Nicole is not just his deep seated feelings of guilt, HOWEVER after that he should realize any time someone affected by Marker madness you should NEVER do what they say, cause the last time he listened he got a fricken needle in his eye for no good reason.

** Fun fact: the biggest danger with spacewalks with current technology is not freezing, but in fact overheating. EVA suits in the 21st century use liquid cooling to maintain the astronaut's body temperature. In regards to the question: the arctic survival suit is designed for use in cold, planetside operations, while the EVA suit is designed for vacuum, zero-gravity operations. While there's no actual difference in gameplay, the best explanation is that you wear the suit that best fits what you're trying to do: sure, that EVA suit will let you survive in Antarctica, but it's bulky and hard to move it, so it's better to use proper cold weather gear.

** In addition, Isaac is amped up for the entire sequence. He is riding an adrenaline rush, and that's helping him keep going. It's entirely possible that he eventually will freeze, but not in the time it takes to kill the final boss.

** Billions. Hundreds of billions. Trillions. If Serrano is to be believed, dozens if not hundreds of civilizations have been destroyed by the Markers.

** Alternatively, the necromorphs are trying to kill Isaac because [[spoiler: that's just what they do. They also attack the Unitologists, who are all about helping the Necromorphs, so it's more likely that they simply can't differentiate between ally and enemy.]]
