He once told me the universe was a cold place where love had no purpose. Yet he became an astronomer of renown, and married the sister of Sir William Herschel, who’s writings on the stars he’d admired so much.”
(all in relation to Mattie so we might feel less guilty for shipping them)
I’ve been rewatching episode 6 and Leo’s childhood. Mia is 14 years old, and when doing my first calculation (I thought wrongly that she was created at the only age Leo’s ever given the audience, which is 13) I got 27 years old for Leo which is literally too old for this ship to be confortable.
But Mia was created when he was only a kid. He still played with toys and looked up to Mia. The next step is then to guess what age Leo was when Mia was created, and a first guess would be that he was around 8 (estimation due to his size). That would make present Leo be 22 years old. (!!)
Another clue we’re given is Mattie saying that the technology David Elster used for Leo to keep his memory in digital form is ten years old, but Leo told her that it was not to his father, that he still used it after it had become obsolete. Now, this could be related to using them on Leo’s siblings, but Leo’s accident was after Max, the little brother, was created. This line concern’s Leo’s accident. Therefore, Leo’s accident must have been less than ten years from now, maybe 8 or 7. He was thirteen years old. 13 + 8 = 21. (therefore, he would have been 7 years old when Mia was created. I’m such a good guesser).
Leo’s in his early twenties, not 30 years old. Mattie’s been seen driving a car, and Wikipedia tells me teenagers in their seventies can already have a driving licence. She’s in high-school. She must be 17, at best 18.
