A while ago, I was in the midst of writing and planning a series of webcartoons. One of the jokes hinged on what happened when someone was exposed to the vacuum of space without a fully sealed suit. The joke called for them to become instant astronaut-sicles, complete with hilariously frozen expressions.
I didn’t want to rely on my shaky knowledge of space though, so I asked a friend who works in the space industry and he steered me toward this article on Gizmodo.
Good information, even if it did ruin my joke.
