According To the NASA website about 30 seconds as long as you don't try to hold your breath. they say this woul dmake your lungs explode. they also said unlike the widley accepted theory, your blood would not boil. this is because it is a closed system and not exposed to the vacum in space. there was an accident in a vacum chamber with a leaking suit and the last thing the guy remebers is the water on his tongue beginning to boil...i wonder if your eyeballs would boil...that's a whole other ball game...
