  1. There are explosions in space. Just not huge continuous explosions. For
    example shooting a bullet from a rifle. The bullet itself has an oxidizing
    agent giving it enough O2 to cause the explosion to propel the bullet ergo,

  2. Wouldn’t we kinda explode in space without a suit on? I mean, there is no
    pressure holding us together, wouldn’t our atoms disperse? Just looked it
    up, we would swell a lot due to the low pressure and our blood would
    probably boil.

  3. Also, you won’t die immediately if exposed to the vacuum. You’ll stay
    conscious for about 15 seconds before all the oxygen is used up in your
    blood before passing out, long enough to feel the moisture boiling off your
    tongue and eyeballs, and no you won’t explode. Oh, and don’t try and hold
    your breath, that will only make your lungs burst.

  4. I already knew all of these myths weren’t true. I bet most people didn’t
    people believe several of them.
