Always a great question – what happens to somebody when exposed to a vacuum? I always liked this question. If we were unlucky enough to be sucked out of the airlock, like in alien – what would happen? Would we explode, blood and guts everywhere. Would it take time to die? Well, when I saw this article I thought it was an April fools story, but the release is dated the 3rd of April. The scientists claim to have seen bugs alive and kicking in a vacuum.
