The same thing happened to my husband when he was small, but they were told that if they exited the boat thingy, they would get electrocuted. It was traumatic. To this day, he cringes when he hears the song and leaves the room. His mom used to tell how he, his brother and sister were all crying and begging her to "turn the music off." I have a great recent shot of them grinning with thumbs up in front of the attraction by a sign that says "Closed For Repairs."

That's long enough to think over some things
("Why am I in the vacuum? Mmh, anyway, kinda fancy way to die...")

In the first 30 seconds any fluid on the surface of your body would begin to boil due to lack of ambient pressure, this includes the saliva on your tongue and the moisture in your eyes. Your eardrums would most likely burst due to the pressure in your body trying to equalize with the vacuum outside. Unlike what some science fiction films have suggested, your body would not explode.

After the first 15 seconds you would lose consciousness. If you held your breath you could potentially stay alive longer but you risk pulmonary trauma. If you didn't hold your breath you'd pass out sooner, but your lungs might have a better chance of avoiding permanent damage.

The pressure in your veins would rise until your heart no longer had the capacity to pump blood, at which point you'd die.
These are not exactly the kind of moments I long to savour...

Asthma a blessing? Umm...sure, if you find breathing a troublesome bore.
