ALF raided a MOD lab and rescued 9 goats used in decompression testing. Pictures are nice I thought. So they are not all that bad.
Great photos. I was just reading about the effects of decompression vis a vis the Lockerbie Pam Am crash in 1988. What does it feel like? Unfortunately, the passengers on that flight cannot respond. 'But one woman who experienced a rapid decompression on a 747 a few months later described the sudden drop in pressure as "a knife through my head". The cabin of a passenger jet is like a big balloon that is blown up and deflated everytime a plane takes off and lands, sealing the passengers inside an environment that is safe and comfortable as the plane cruises at 30,000 ft. When the fuselage is ruptured, the pressurization balloon pops and the cabin begins to rapidly decompress. Gases in the sinuses, ears, lungs, stomach and gastrointestinal system expand rapidly, to reach equilibrium with the thinner outside air, swelling the abdomen and bulging the eyes, forcing air out of the lungs'. The rest you can imagine.
I'm glad for these goats.
