    Space suicide?

    Hmm. Well yesterday I was watching this movie (can't remember the name) and right before she went to space, they gave her like this thing in a tube. And she was like "I haven't came all the way here, to commit suicide". And he said "This is just in case anything goes wrong, so you don't suffer".

    What's that thing they give people that go to space, so they can commit suicide, and not suffer is something went wrong? What's it called, and what does it do? Die instantly? Does it like kill all of your organs or some shit? I'm just curios.

    There is plenty of ways to die in space; not to mention suffer.

    Thought if you took off your helmet your head froze.
    Isn't it like super below 0 in space?

    I know that. I just uses that as an example. I just want to know the thing they give to you, in case ANYTHING goes wrong, to where it kills you.

    I'm curios on what it's called, and what it does to your body.

    That's a good question. I know that planets out there, are freezing and shit. But that just might be on the planet? Because you'd need air for the coldness to head out around space, and their is no air, so it can't expand? Hmm? >>

    THEY GIVE YOU SOMETHING IN SPACE DIP-SACK. Suffocating would be torture, so they give you something that would kill you right then and there, without any pain. And I want to know what it's called, and what it does..

    When the human body is suddenly exposed to the vacuum of space, a number of injuries begin to occur immediately. Though they are relatively minor at first, they accumulate rapidly into a life-threatening combination. The first effect is the expansion of gases within the lungs and digestive tract due to the reduction of external pressure. A victim of explosive decompression greatly increases their chances of survival simply by exhaling within the first few seconds, otherwise death is likely to occur once the lungs rupture and spill bubbles of air into the circulatory system. Such a life-saving exhalation might be due to a shout of surprise, though it would naturally go unheard where there is no air to carry it.

    In the absence of atmospheric pressure water will spontaneously convert into vapor, which would cause the moisture in a victim's mouth and eyes to quickly boil away. The same effect would cause water in the muscles and soft tissues of the body to evaporate, prompting some parts of the body to swell to twice their usual size after a few moments. This bloating may result in some superficial bruising due to broken capillaries, but it would not be sufficient to break the skin.

    A NASA altitude chamberWithin seconds the reduced pressure would cause the nitrogen which is dissolved in the blood to form gaseous bubbles, a painful condition known to divers as "the bends." Direct exposure to the sun's ultraviolet radiation would also cause a severe sunburn to any unprotected skin. Heat does not transfer out of the body very rapidly in the absence of a medium such as air or water, so freezing to death is not an immediate risk in outer space despite the extreme cold.

    For about ten full seconds– a long time to be loitering in space without protection– an average human would be rather uncomfortable, but they would still have their wits about them. Depending on the nature of the decompression, this may give a victim sufficient time to take measures to save their own life. But this period of "useful consciousness" would wane as the effects of brain asphyxiation begin to set in. In the absence of air pressure the gas exchange of the lungs works in reverse, dumping oxygen out of the blood and accelerating the oxygen-starved state known as hypoxia. After about ten seconds a victim will experience loss of vision and impaired judgement, and the cooling effect of evaporation will lower the temperature in the victim's mouth and nose to near-freezing. Unconsciousness and convulsions would follow several seconds later, and a blue discoloration of the skin called cyanosis would become evident.

    At this point the victim would be floating in a blue, bloated, unresponsive stupor, but their brain would remain undamaged and their heart would continue to beat. If pressurized oxygen is administered within about one and a half minutes, a person in such a state is likely make a complete recovery with only minor injuries, though the hypoxia-induced blindness may not pass for some time. Without intervention in those first ninety seconds, the blood pressure would fall sufficiently that the blood itself would begin to boil, and the heart would stop beating. There are no recorded instances of successful resuscitation beyond that threshold.

    PS: I always thought you would implode and they would be pouring you out of your helmet into a zip-loc space bag for a later burial.
    Still doesn't answer your question about the tube thingy.

    I know about that kinda stuff. But lets say your helmet came off some how, and instead of dying all the ways you could (Suffocation, pressure, ECT) You simply take the thing they gave you, and it kills you so you don't have to be getting killed by space. Blah, I want to know what that thing is called, and what it does. :l

    Still researching, I'll let you know if I find something.

    I read in this book that Russian spies used to have "Sucide Pills" that they would give the spy and if the spy got captured they could pop in in their mouth and cuase instand cardiac arrest.It was a WWII book.
