If you were exposed to the harsh depths of space, you’d lose consciousness in 15 seconds, and be dead within 30 seconds to 1 minute.

But what if you’re wearing an advanced powerful spacesuit? Well, that would buy you about 6 hours before your oxygen runs out, and then you’d still be dead.

So what would happen to your body? Would someone come to retrieve it? Or would it just keep floating through space forever?
