: In a nutshell, what will happen to the human body if it : is exposed to the elements of outer space. I know that : the temperature of space is approx. -450 degrees F, and : that space is a vacuum, but what will actually : happen to a human body if it were thrown out there?

I'm not sure, but from what I've derived from the googolplex of books I've read, it becomes apparent that the body will become an icicle and explode because of the pressure variations external and internal to the human body. Of course, the human would be dead by then, so why would he care? :)
