What would happen if an astronaut took of his helmet in space?
If an astronaut took off his helmet in space, his body would explode from the lack of pressure in space before other problems would become noticeable.
He/she would suffocate and/or freeze.
you would die by the presher of the space
He/she will suffocate, freeze, and explode due to lack of oxygen, heat, and pressure.
I hope so. However, if they see something that would be noisy on the Earth, but in space, like a rocket firing, they would not hear it in space, because sound needs a medium to travel through, like air. There is no air in space, it is mostly a vacuum. So the only sounds an astronaut should hear are his radio, his breathing and anything tapping on his helmet (the air in the helmet will… Read More
you would burn up even before you knew what was going on
well you would suffocate cause theres no air on the moon...
they wouldn't breath and die. then (relative to the position of the astronaut)if the corpse float up in space it will burn to ashes and if it floats down in space it will freeze and the ice block will always be there.
What might happen if an astronaut floating in space moved the north poles of two magnets together and let them go?
The result would be the same as on Earth (except in 3D). Something different would happen (i) if the astronaut let go of one magnet before the other or (ii) if there were two astronauts, with one magnet each. (In space, the astronaut could spin, as well (except much more slowly).)
It is impossible. The black hole is in space and I am pretty sure you aren't an astronaut.
You would die, because you wouldn't be wearing a helmet in space...
It would depend on the amount of time that the helmet was off.
an astronaut would simply take rations for the number of days he would go to space
They would quickly die of asphyxiation due to the lack of air and the astronauts blood would boil because there is very little pressure in space so this would lower the boiling point of your blood causing it to boil quicker at a lower temperature this would also contribute to killing the astronaut.
They will die. There appears to be some question as to whether they will freeze to death or if they would explode from the internal body pressure.
If he took a monkey with him, presumably for scientific purposes, it would need to wear a suit just like the astronaut so it could breath and be protected from space.
you would not have enough oxygen and suffocate
An astronaut will only eat food which will give them enough energy. This energy would lead them to perform rigorous tasks.
we can see continents on earth
well of course there is. there is no air in space. only a lunatic would take his helmet of in space and die.
Vitamin D will keep you happy in space which comes from the sun.
In open space? In a helmet with oxygen tank? There is no air in space, and no air pressure, therefore if you had no helmet your head would implode. But in the few seconds before that happens, yes, technically you could snore. No one would hear you though, even if they were right next to you.
The first American astronaut to walk in space is late Edward White, the Russian Alexi Lenov was the first man to walk in space, say float would be the correct word.
1. The first food eater by an American astronaut in outer space is beef & vegetables. This was in an aluminum toothpaste-like tube that would be squeezed out of the tip.
Astronauts take vacuum packed food into space so that it is preserved. Although, if you think about it, this is quite strange because there is no atmosphere in space and therefore how can it go off ? Anyway, I digress, for lunch an astronaut would eat Starbucks.
Answer: The book has outline drawings, of the space shuttle, the International Space Sation and a spacewalking astronaut.
Due to Newton's 3rd law of motion the astronaut would move in the opposite direction unless he/she is braced against something.
yes because it will help u point to the dirces
yes why because i want to know all about the space exploration.
Even though the space station is traveling at a speed of 17,500 miles per hour, all objects inside or attached to the space station are traveling in the same speed and direction. Relative to these objects, the space station will appear like it isn't moving at all. When an astronaut goes on an extra-vehicular activity (EVA) outside the space station, he will still be moving in the same speed and direction as the space station… Read More
If an astronaut was stranded in space but was hovering above the earths atmosphere would there be any way to make it back alive?
The astronaut would need to be rescued. There is no way to get back to Earth from orbit in only a spacesuit.
Would it be possible for an astronaut to be frozen by a 'freak mishap' in space like Buck Rogers was?
Such so called 'freak mishaps' a fictional devices used to create a story. They cannot happen in reality.
The astronaut would freeze because black is a good absorber and radiator. So, as it absorbs heat, it gives it away. The astronaut would loose a lot of heat very quickly.
It would depend on the circumstances and the damage done.
A pound is a unit of mass. Mass is constant throughout the cosmos, so if the astronaut has a MASS of 180 pounds on Earth, it will be the same even in space. But, the astronaut doesn't have a weight of 180 pounds. His MASS is 180 pounds. Weight = mass x gravity. So, in space, his weight is 0 Newtons.
you cant moron there's no gravity in space there for you can not drop something down to earth from space.
1. You wouldn't have any electric 2. Nothing would happen as there is no air in space.
you would die
I would want to work in the rocket ship when they're traveling in space! I want to experience the Anti-Gravity! That would be fun!
Assuming the astronaut is doing a spacewalk, if s/he is not provided with an alternate oxygen source within several minutes, the astronaut will die of asphyxia.
The American space center N.A.S.A was responsible for choosing which astronaut would walk on the moon.
Because "astronaut" would be a pretty silly name for a guy who went into caves.
Astro would be the root word of astronaut. the root word astro means of space.
When a astronaut is in space her body is acted upon by increased gravitational force from the earth?
No, it would be with a decreased force of gravity.
you would not be able to breathe
for a space suit you would need tubes that pumps hot and cold air into the helmet and suit and pressurized atmosphere
Space suits can be punctured by pieces of space junk, as even the shuttle itself has been damaged slightly. Tiny flecks of paint or rock particles have the same ability to damage as a bullet does. Spacewalking astronauts have found their gloves punctured on at least two occasions. Once, the object that pierced it remained in place and kept it sealed, and the other time the puncture extended only through two of the five glove… Read More
Because the air pressure in space is zero, i.e. a vacuum, so the internal pressure inside your body is no longer being balanced by the external pressure. Actually, many things would happen to you in this situation, including death.
Two ways of going to the International Space Station Would be to become a professional astronaut / cosmonaut or to be a space tourist (you need to be able to pay about 30 millions dollars and pass a multitude of physicals and the 6 to 8 month cosmonaut training is Russias Star City).
No. The reason why is, the astronaut and the spaceship are traveling at the same speed. The astronaut would have to careful though! Because, if the astronaut pushed away slightly from the spaceship as the astronaut stepped out, the astronaut would drift away from the spaceship and would continue to drift across space forever, provided the astronaut didn't bump into anything out there or get sucked in by the gravity field of a planet or… Read More
