    Explanation
    In outer space, a human being can survive for approximately 15 seconds without protective gear. This is because the lack of atmospheric pressure and oxygen in space causes rapid decompression and asphyxiation. Additionally, the extreme temperatures and radiation in space can also be fatal. Therefore, it is crucial for astronauts to wear specialized suits that provide them with oxygen, temperature regulation, and protection from the harsh environment of outer space.
