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.

Sorry bro, but plate tectonics aren't the reason the Earth absorbs carbon dioxide, keeping us from turning into Venus. That lovely honor goes to our oceans, which survived in the early stages of our universe because of the magnetic field surrounding our planet (Water can absorb CO2). Venus doesn't have a magnetic field, so what little water it had was broken up at the molecular level by ultraviolet rays and then carried away by solar wind, thus taking away one of the few things Venus had that could have absorbed the deathly amounts of CO2.

Venus's history is sad. :(

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 ONLINE (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 (05/02/2013) [-]
No the fact about the earth day is why we have leap years. Daylight savings is different.

I called ******** at being able to survive 2 minutes unprotected in space. If thats from radiation or something then maybe, but space is a vacuum, there is no pressure against your body, this the internal outward pressure of your body would make you explode
User avatar #53 to #52 - tammus (05/02/2013) [-]
No, if you held your breath in space your body would be able to maintain pressure quite well. The violent explosion is a misconception.

You can see the Great Wall from space. But not from the Moon.
User avatar #51 to #50 - eddymolly (05/02/2013) [-]
You can't see any man made obects after around 100 miles, but in low orbit you can see loads of stuff, large highways, big buildings, ships etc. Condidering most orbits are in the few hundred miles at minimum, you can't really see anything detailed from orbit

The great wall isn't that special.

9.2 billion by 2050? That sounds a bit pessimistic. I mean the jump from 5.5 billion to 7 billion has happened just within my lifetime. Given that scale and ratio, if birth and death ratios and growth rates remain constant I think we can optimistically say at least 10.5 billion by 2050.

Earth gonna be overcrowded as **** anyways.

The Caucasian population is already in decline in the USA. Not many Caucasian Americans are having children. The Southern countries should enact a 1 child rule like in China.
