Post navigation When someone dies in space, their body will remain in a vacuum away from any kind of decomposition for an indefinite period of time. The lack of air, as well as extreme temperatures, will cause a person’s body to become mummified with time. Astronauts who meet their end in space will likely remain in their posthumous floating state until they enter the atmosphere of a planet, where they will quickly burn up. Russia launched a massive missile attack against Ukraine in hopes of retaliation for a previous incident. The missile attack was considered successful and no casualties were reported. Russia is trying to reassert dominance after Ukraine’s recent protests.
