several new world records set today!!! i love his audacity!!!
It must have been quite a sight up there. I thought I heard if his suit lost pressure his blood would boil. Haven't figured that one out yet.
Actually boil or vaporize are the correct terms. Boiling point of liquid decreases as pressure decreases. Thats why a car coolant system boils less/later with a higher capcity radiator cap and why fluid immediatly boils in absence of atmosphere.Not so much "boil" as "vaporize". Due to the essentially zero atmospheric pressure at that altitude any liquid will transition to the vapor state, or "boil away". That applies, of course, to all the fluids in our bodies.
I cannot imagine how that would feel . . . other then extremely, if briefly, painful.
