Oooohh, there are many ways to die in space.

  • Asphyxiation.
  • Radiation poisoning.
  • Being hit by a moving projectile.
  • Being sucked into the gravity of another planet and being crushed.
  • Being sucked into the gravity of another planet and being fried by the friction of its atmosphere.
  • Freezing to death
  • Boiling to death.
  • Starving to death.
  • Having your body expand sooo much that it explodes.
  • Inhalation of poisons gases.
  • Being ripped apart by immense gravitational attraction.
  • Having every atom of your body, striped apart in a supernova explosion.

….and many more.

In most cases, just trying to get into space will be sufficient.
