The Fluid marked with an orange symbol.

The Fluid is a liquid that seems to fuel everything that the Prawns use like their weapons and ships. The Fluid probably powers their everyday technology on their home planet. It also seems to contain prawn DNA, where the observed effects of coming into contact with Wikus seemed to initiate a genetic reaction, eventually resulting in his apparent transformation into a Prawn. It seems that one canister of The Fluid can power a whole ship for hyperspace.
