Death In Space: Death By Broken Heater


In this post I will be talking about how dangerous space can be, when you have a broken heater! you may think “how is this dangerous” “what about oxygen isn’t that more dangerous” NO! heaters… they are the bane of all astronauts existences. Heaters are such important things but when they turn on you, you may as well just self destruct your ship along with your crew. Anyway I hope you enjoy story time on Thai’s Blog.

July 26th 2057 my last shipment of uranium ore back to earth before I could retire so this will be my last entry in my captain’s log. In the ship it is like 17 degrees and I am draining the water supplies. The temperature should be around 5 degrees. The air conditioning system is probably broken, again. Yup I just checked it, it always breaks down on this long route back to earth. The worst part is it isn’t reliable, last time I took this route it was like -20 degrees when I arrived. It also gets worse every time, sometimes I’m tempted to open a window or something but I quickly realize that I would be sucked out into the black abyess of space and never be found again. I get up and grab myself some ice cold water but it only helps for a couple seconds, I am starting to get worried about the heat my thermometer says 39 but I feel hotter than that, it is becoming unbearable I need a source of cold or a way to get rid of this heat, the heater has never acted up this bad before it is currently 65 degrees. I can no longer stand it, it is 90 degrees, have to open the window…AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

I hope you enjoyed this story by me and thanks for reading,

ps: don’t be cheap on air conditioning, it may just save your life.
