Murder of the Mission DirectorEdit
The mission director wanted to postpone the mission even though the mission had a very small window that it could launch.
The director that was killed by Josef was hated because he caused cutbacks and was trying to stop the mission to the Titan numerous times. Vincent was first thought to have killed him with a keyboard, but Detective Hugo later discovered that Director Josef was the culprit. The mission had a very small time frame that it could launch in and the setbacks made by the mission director angered Director Josef because he was old and if they missed the time frame he wouldn't live to see the next one.
Director Josef killed the mission director and his DNA would have to have been exceptionally perfect for him to be working in such an honorable role at Gattaca. This shows humans can be cruel even if they have the ‘perfect’ DNA and is an example that in a society that seems to be only rational and scientific passion prevails.
