What happens to a living organism in outer space?!
Gravity 2013 opens with the warning that “life in space is impossible”. But planet Earth itself is a space station – so it all depends on how we look at this Life In Space situation.
So what happens to a living organism in space?
First of all, your body feels incredibly confused, inner organs, the blood flow has no idea what’s going on. It is amazing to see people living in outer space for months and, although dealing with severe problems, such as bloating, dizziness, vision problems, loss of blood (swelling makes the body ‘assume’ there’s too much fluid) and bone mass, muscle atrophy, their bodies manage to adapt to an incredible extent – to survive in conditions they were never designed for. That is amazing! (We’d advise not to stick around outside of Mother Planet’s nourishing gravity for too long, as these health complications get more and more severe, whilst your body starts to look more and more like the one of, phoetically speaking, a jellyfish).
Second of all, your mind inevitably starts to play tricks on you. Loneliness and monotony is damaging enough on Earth, but how can one escape it, whilst trapped in the spaceship/station? Many astronauts have reported seeing something – maybe they actually have – be it other sentient beings or amazing natural phenomena that occurs in outer space and we don’t have enough info about.
There’s 6 people in outer space at the moment of writing this entry. Not that big of a crowd, still nicer than being alone up there, as we see in all these films… and ‘Lone Cosmonaut’ not being an exception. :)
Just you wait to see what happens!
