MY GIRLFRIEND IS FUCKING INSANE
No it would be instantaneous and then your body would float around those big colorful nebulas and you could get to other galaxies and maybe become part of a moon or get incinerated in a star or fall into a black hole.
You could become part of an asteroid and impact on a moon and your microscopic dust remains are scattered all over the crater.
You could become part of a star and undergo nuclear fission and turn into hydrogen and your body is a tiny fraction of the process of the star and you make light for the universe and then the star ages and your atoms get turned into iron and then the star goes supernova and you’re spewed across the universe as space dust.
You could land of a kind-of habitable planet and your DNA survives as you start to decompose and in a few million years the primitive life forms of your body become science’s greatest mystery for humankind.
You could be found by an alien civilization who’s also wondering ‘are we alone in the universe’ and suddenly they know they’re not because woah processed materials and tools and crazy-developed processing centers woah and then in a couple thousand years they make first contact because of the space-travelling cultural revolution your corpse prompted in their society and the humans of the future go ‘how did you get all these spaceships and junk’ and they reverently pull out your body and you are interred with great fanfare and people make you statues and holidays and stuff.
Your body could end up literally anywhere in the universe and you’d be the first human there because who said you had to be alive huh?
What is wrong with you

Death in space isn’t instantaneous!
Well, i don’t know if about a minute counts as ‘in an instant’ so
It’s not the worst way to go, but it’s still pretty rad.
a few people have been exposed to the vacuum of space, so we have a decent idea of what goes on,
You’re only going to last maybe 10 seconds, until you black out, but you still have a while until you die after that. you might black out before that bc pain, but that hasn’t happened before
Here’s some things you’d experience during those 10 or 15 seconds
Any liquid on your body, that’s exposed to space would boil, instantly. Your tongue, for example, would have its saliva boil and, (bc evaporative cooling) would probably freeze. Some of the fluids in you would freeze (evaporative cooling) before they could all evaporate
Space is really cold, (~-270*C, 3K, -455*F) so the liquids aren’t boiling hot, they are evaporating, but while incredibly cold
(the temperature at which things boil gets lower the lower the pressure goes, there’s no air pressure in space, so most liquids would boil at the lowest possible temperature (0K, -273*C). A neat example of this is that if you get high enough (Mt Everest, might be high enough but i need to check) you can boil water while sticking your hand in it and not burning bc the water is boiling at like 30*C (86*F)
All the liquids inside you would turn to boil and expand until you are about twice your normal size though you wouldn’t explode, and it’s unlikel you’d pop. (some pretty severe stretch marks tho)
you wouldn’t freeze instantly, (there’s no-where for the heat to go to, thermodynamically) and once your fluids were done evaporating, you’d only have infrared energy to cool you down (which could take hours)
and you’ll be dead by then so
Bc the ozone layer protects you from UV, you would get sunburn almost instantly, and blinded, if you look at the sun. if you get saved before you die, you’d also probably have a good chance of catching skin cancer or some kind of mutation (i’ll get to that in a sec)
Your lungs would empty and you would have no oxygen. you’d probably die in a minute though
You would be blacking out after 10 seconds bc of suffocation by hypoxia. (The dissolved oxygen in your bloodstream leaving your blood and leaving the cardiovascular system useless). The fact you can’t breath doesn’t help.
bc of all the radiation in space your cells (if any survive) would mutate, and your DNA might alter
it is unlikely this would give you a superpower
idk, if your superpower is like, within the realm of possibility, like say you want to be superstrong, it’s possible the genes which code for muscle growth could mutate, unlikely, but possibly
but no xray vision, or stuff that’s physically impossible
piece of advice, if you do get trapped in space, don’t take a huge breath before you leave, bc when you do that you’re going to be like a balloon with no air pressure outside, and go pop, through the weakest point (probably the valve in your windpipe, unless ou’re like a deep sea breath holder, or something
You’d also turn literally blue, which is neat.
Anyway, death by space is probably the most rad way to go,
