Falling (Score: 1) by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2014-12-22 07:07 (#2W8P) If you fell out of this thing, would you die before you hit the ground? Re: Falling (Score: 2, Interesting) by email@example.com on 2014-12-22 08:15 (#2W8R) You'd certainly go unconscious pretty quickly... extremely high temperatures combined with no oxygen and poison gases if you do try to take a breath. No doubt you'd have heat-stroke before you hit, but the human body doesn't just instantly shut-off when stressed beyond its limits. With the fall taking less than 2 minutes, you'd likely still be alive, even if pretty far gone.

Assuming you're in a space suit capable of like support in open space, leaving from earth, at what point would you actually die? I imagine you wouldn't make it alive to the sun's corona, right?
