You know you can’t survive in outer space, but did you know how fast things unfold when out there without life support? First, you’d lose consciousness in a matter of 15 seconds for lack of oxygen. Then your blood and body fluids would boil because of the absence of atmospheric pressure to keep them in liquid state. But before they evaporate, they’d lose heat at once and freeze over in as short as thirty seconds. Your organs would also expand because of the boiling liquid inside you, giving you a nearly bursting look. In the meantime, hurling dirt and small particles would come at you at bullet speed, while the sun bombards you with radiation at unimaginable levels. Space is harsh, which makes you appreciate that Omega
being the official NASA timekeeper, the watch must be extra tough to function in outer space.
Omega is available at Schiffman's in Downtown Greensboro.
