Aliens place you in a glass sphere in outer space. The sphere is held fifteen feet away from a spaceship by a rigid steel rod. Your captors will bring you back to Earth and set you free if you can manage to get inside an open hatch in the ship's side. In the sphere, you have a deck of playing cards and a small rodent. You have no spacesuit. What is your best strategy for freedom?


Answer

Forget the rodent and cards. Break the sphere and crawl to the hatch. Contrary to popular opinion, your body will not explode in the vacuum of outer space. Your tissues will greatly swell, but if you are recompressed within a short time, they will return to normal. You should have fifteen seconds of useful consciousness before you pass out, and several minutes would be required before you died.
