Line 1: Line 1:
 +**If your skin was exposed in space and you bled would your blood be blue from 
 +lack of oxygen?** 
 +---- 
 +Presuming that, except for your arm, you were in a space suit and happily 
 +breathing, then your blood would still be red, as your blood gets oxygen 
 +from your lungs. As soon as the blood became exposed to space, the water 
 +and gases in your blood would instantly start to boil away, and whatever 
 +red-blood cells in your blood that gave it a red color would essentially 
 +explode. So, I doubt that there would be blood left to have a color (the 
 +above process is very fast).
