Luca Parmitano Nearly Drowns in Space

Parmitano LargeLuca Parmitano’s post about his truly harrowing experience – nearly drowning in space – is a must-read.

As a person with severe anaphylaxis to tree nut, I can attest to the claustrophobic feeling at the edge of panic that occurs right here on Earth when control over the mechanisms that ensure your life is suddenly gone.

Bravo to Luca Parmitano! We’re lucky he’s chosen to lead the way into space.

Need a peek? I frantically think of a plan. It’s vital that I get inside as quickly as possible. I know that if I stay where I am, Chris will come and get me, but how much time do I have? It’s impossible to know.
