PASSING GAS IN OUTER SPACE

Breath and rectal gases were analyzed during the first and final weeks. Flatus gases varied widely within dietary groups but much more gas was generated with diet S than with F. In the first 12-hour collection, subjects fed S passed 3 to 209 ml (ATAP) of rectal H2 (avg 52) and 24 to 156 ml (avg 69) from the lungs (assuming normal pulmonary ventilation). With F, these values were 0 to 3 ml (avg 1) and 6 to 36 ml (avg 20). Subjects were calmer during the second test. Gas production was lower with S than initially; F values were unchanged. Methane differed idiosyncratically, presumably due to differences in flora. Computed from 12-hour values, maximum potential daily H2 and CH4 are per man: for S, 730 ml and 382 ml; for F, 80 and 222 ml. Volumes would be larger at reduced spacecraft and suit pressures.

Thank you for sharing. Did someone hack your account or did you really want to share that with us?

Re: PASSING GAS IN OUTER SPACE

Wherever man has conquered in his quest for frontiers new,
I'm glad they always had to do the numbers one and two.
It makes it all so ordinary just like you and me,
To know the greatest heroes, they had to **** and pee.

Re: PASSING GAS IN OUTER SPACE

IC, indeed you could although like propane ( a sometimes used refrigerent) it is flamable. I think it would work best in one of those heat pump things---and you wouldn't need to worry about heating at temps below 40 degrees, when the heat pump can no longer squeeze any heat from the standard refrigerant you just light a match and heat up quick
