What would happen if our body were exposed to vacuum. *

So if I were exposed to vacuum, I'd shit, hyperventilate and bleed from my laceration wounds and my eyes !? :O
Nothing for me to do here :|

There's a fairly sizable error here. While there's no convection in space, there are still two ways to lose heat - radiation and evaporation. Moisture near the surface of the skin will evaporate very quickly, giving off heat in the process (heat of vaporization, which is why we sweat). While our radiation is normally offset to a large degree by incoming radiation from our surroundings (including, to a large extent, the air around us), in the vacuum of space there's mostly just blackness. If the sun were obscured, an average man would have a net heat loss of something like 900 watts. At maybe 10 minutes to hypothermia, definitely the least troublesome problem, but it's a far cry from not freezing. You'd certainly feel cold immediately.

Think about those deep water fishes which are brought to surface. The change in pressure is like from 500 atmospheres (5km deap) to 1. Its more drastic then the change from 1 atm to 0.

Search for clips made by nazi's in WW2.. They did a lot of experiments on people.
