For this crowd, I imagine significantly higher numbers for poisonings and self-harm. If I get to choose, I'm calling space accident.

intentional self-harm seems too high. Does that mean that many people are going to commit suicide? very unlikely.

It's actually very likely. Also for the age group that I imagine most of the boarders are Car accidents would probably be #1.

From what I understand, all of the deaths associated with space travel have happened during launch and reentry and not actually in space.

They're really fucking careful about space travel. I mean, it's gonna be crazy if and when it happens - it'll be the first time the remains of a human being not named Amelia Earhart will not rest on Earth.

1971 June 30: crew exposed to vacuum of space: The crew of Soyuz 11, Georgi Dobrovolski, Viktor Patsayev and Vladislav Volkov, were killed after undocking from space station Salyut 1 after a three-week stay. A valve on their spacecraft had accidentally opened when the service module separated, which was only discovered when the module was opened by the recovery team. Technically the only fatalities in space (above 100 km). ...and they still made it back to earth.

Interesting, I hadn't heard. I guess it's correct to say no human bodies have been lost at space (besides Earhart's of course).

It just feels like a divine conspiracy, doesn't it? Like, these humans were not meant to venture outside the planet, must keep them there.

i think the onlyway someone will die in space is for being incredibly dumb or bad work on the engineers. its freaking space its so complex everything is monitored while they are outside the shuttle. but it would be cool to see a human body around earths orbit and then the bones and then the dust

It wouldn't be all that hard to get your ass killed. Say you accidentally punctured your suit while you were working or didn't anchor yourself properly while you were spacewalking. Both of those pretty nightmarish scenarios, too.

And that's before you get into all the debris floating around in orbit that could shoot a hole in your spacestation/shuttle/what have you.

Or you die of some natural cause like an aneurysm while in orbit. Yeah the astronauts go through some thoroughcheck-ups and have to be in supurb physical shape, but that doesn't mean something couldn't happen. Also, that whole love triangle could have played out in space and a bitch could have been shanked.

Another reason there've been so few deaths in space because so few people've been in space. So not only are they selected and watched/cared for all to hell, the ratio of people in the United States to people from the United States in Space is enormous.

Seems like there are some big percentage causes of death must be missing.

One option is that these numbers only deal with the United States. Some of the folks here're from other countries so they don't count. I doubt it's 60%, though.


So, really, they do have some major causes of death missing. There's gotta be plenty more between heart disease and earth movements.
