Outer Space

  1. 1. Outer Space Emily Godlewski
  2. 2. Description of Outer space: <ul><li>Outer space is the term used to describe the distinctive area between airspace and physical areas. In summary the atmosphere of outer space is a vacuum. There is no friction; allowing the planets and stars to move effectively in their gravitational rotations. The temperature is roughly (-454 degrees F). </li></ul>
  3. 3. Human Reaction: <ul><li>Humans who are unprotected by certified equipment would quickly die from suffocation when in outer space. When exposed to the high amount of pressure, air would immediately leave the lungs, when blood that is not containing oxygen enters the brain, death would shortly follow. </li></ul><ul><li>Human body fluids, including blood, do also boil when their pressure drops below 6.3kPa. </li></ul><ul><li>Contrary to some beliefs, a human would not immediately freeze or explode when exposed to the atmosphere in outer space. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Systems affected <ul><li>When air is forcefully pushed out of the lungs by the high pressure in outer space, the respiratory system is quickly deteriorating. Soon after that, oxygen is not being carried by the blood. This also destroys the circulatory system. When oxygen is not being carried by the blood the nervous system quickly crashes. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Adaptations <ul><li>Swelling can be controlled by containment of a flight suit. This is what astronauts wear this elastic garment. </li></ul><ul><li>The garment also preserves natural water vapor on the body in order to prevent frost and other natural body regulations. </li></ul><ul><li>They contain a specific amount of pure oxygen in order to maintain consciousness for the person inside. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Adaptations <ul><li>Astronauts train for years before attempting a mission; they practice flight simulations, crash landings, and other dangerous aspects to what they would face in outer space. Not just anyone would be able to survive these drastic conditions. </li></ul>
