A human could float around for 2 minutes in space without any protection?

The human body is a sealed pressurized container. You don't just explode.

Tardigrades can withstand temperatures from just above absolute zero to well above the boiling point of water, as well as pressures greater than any found in the deepest ocean trenches, along with solar radiation, gamma radiation, ionic radiation— at doses hundreds of times higher than would kill a person and have lived through the vacuum of outer space. They can go without food or water for nearly 120 years, drying out to the point where they are 3% or less water, only to rehydrate, forage, and reproduce.

These ************* exist and yet people still have the nerve to say theres no life other than Earth. ******* people...

You're right. This is unbelievable. Better show some sources, yo.

So wait...

How did they gauge the amount of time it took for space to kill someone?



Did they push some poor ****** out into space absolutely naked?

I...explain, please.

How come people can says the center of the earth is a solid iron ball with temperature of 5500 C ? Nobody has ever reach it, right? Isn't it just a possibility/estimation? not a fact?

EXPLAIN!
User avatar #64 to #62 - biomedic (05/02/2013) [-]
The earth's magnetism is evidence that there is a large solid magnet at the centre of the earth, since the polarity of the iron atoms have to be in a pattern that would not exist if it were liquid. The fact you can also replicate the conditions in a laboratory and observe that iron turns to solid at such pressures provides further evidence. Just because you can't see something doesn't mean it doesn't exist, but only if you can measure it's effects. Like gravity.

So is that fact about the earth day why we have day light savings and **** ? Turning th clock ahead and backwards?
User avatar #95 to #85 - Kazseppi ONLINE (05/02/2013) [-]
No the fact about the earth day is why we have leap years. Daylight savings is different.

common misconception, dinosaurs aren't reptiles or amphibians. they're just dinosaurs. If they are reptiles or amphibians, then technically they aren't dinosaurs.

There are 24 hours in the day as far our position from the Sun is concerned.
The sidereal day is the time it takes for the Earth to rotate from the point of view of the stars. It's mainly used by astronomers to keep their telescopes in one place.
Just think for a second.. If the day was 5 minutes less than 24 hours and our clocks were accurate by the second, the day and night cycles would shift.
Leap years are caused because it takes approx. 365.25 days to orbit the Sun.

I call ******** on a human surviving 2 minutes in space;
1) assuming your lungs were full of air the pressure difference between your lungs and space would cause you to explode pretty much instantly
2) if your lungs weren't full of air, most people wouldn't survive the 2 minutes anyway. (at least not while remaining conscious)
3) a point that was mentioned later in the post, at 12 miles high your blood would boil at body temperature, in the vacuum of space it would boil much easier.

I imagine there are more reasons that this, but until NASA actually test this to prove those points wrong I will always call ******** .
