Human Exposure to the Vacuum of Space, or, GET YOUR ASS TO MARS

GET YOUR ASS TO MARS



I just finished reading some information about what it would actually be like to be in the vacuum of space. Apparently, you don't end up like Arnie in Total Recall.

Here's an excerpt about where shit went really wrong with a Russian space shuttle. Apparently the skin swells to two times its normal size, but then within a few hours it returns to normal. Hence, no signs of vacuum exposure.

"Recovery personnel soon came upon the crew who looked like they were simply asleep and showed no swollen skin or other signs of vacuum exposure. Believing they had only been unconscious for a brief period, personnel attempted CPR but were unable to revive the crew. It is believed they had already been deceased for 15 to 20 minutes by the time the rescue party arrived making any resuscitation impossible."
