Scientists have estimated that a human will have about 90-seconds to be recompressed, if exposed to the vacuum of space, after which death may be unavoidable. Unconsciousness is likely to occur within 14-seconds, primarily due to the much lower pressure outside the body causing rapid de-oxygenation of the blood. One incident that occurred in 1966, involved NASA test subject Jim LeBlanc who lost consciousness after approximately 15-seconds of being accidentally depressurized in a ground-based depressurization chamber. Less severe effects include the formation of nitrogen gas bubbles and consequent interference with organ function (decompression sickness), which is less severe in space than in diving.

Oreo Churros have now become a reality, or at least the version that doesn't require you visit a theme park or county fair.

" A decent chair will usually do the job. Helps if you have another person to support them like Sean here. I also got him to flick her hair simultaneously so it wouldn't look too weird. I knew I wanted dust in the image, rather than relying on photoshop brushes I got Sean to throw a bunch of dirt in the air with a shovel.
