Weather of Arabia - What would happen to the astronaut if he left the International Station without wearing his suit? A question that often comes to mind, and carries with it a lot of terror, as the results will not be easy at all! And this is what will happen:

 

Since there is no actual atmospheric pressure in space, the boiling point of liquids drops dramatically, since 60 percent of the human body is made up of water, the liquid water in our body will boil, instantly turning from liquid to gas, and all body tissues that contain water will begin to Expansion!

 

And no human being can escape from this, death is possible in less than two minutes.” Some humans have already experienced similar incidents, and they survived to tell us the story.

 

In 1966, NASA aerospace engineer Jim LeBlanc was helping to test the performance of spacesuit prototypes in a huge vacuum chamber. At some point in the test, the hose feeding the compressed air into his suit disconnected.

 

Jim LeBlanc talks about the incident, saying: "When I stumbled backwards and the hose disconnected, I felt the saliva on my tongue turn into bubbles, as if it was boiling before I passed out."

 

The formation of gas bubbles in bodily fluids also occurs in deep-water divers, who transition very quickly from a high-pressure underwater environment to a lower pressure at the water's surface.

 

For astronauts, the blood that flows through the veins boils less quickly than the water in the tissues, because the circulatory system has its own internal pressure.
