If people travel in a rocket into deep space, would they turn into ice?

If people travel into deep space, to mars or some other planet, would them or the ship that they're in turn to ice? If their rocket landed on mars it would be layered in ice and the door won't open at all but be frozen shut. The crew members might even turn to ice. How can people ever travel to different planets?


1) How does something that's not water "turn to ice"? (Do you mean FREEZE? No, there is something called "a heater".) 2. Again, there is something called a "heater". 3. People have been to the Moon, which is large enough to be considered a drawf planet, so of course people can travel to different planetsl The chief imediments to travelling further are a) time and b) shielding from radiation.

In order to have ice, you need to start with water, and there is no water out there.


Nope. There is no water in space! The rockets' human module is well insulated from the outside so keeps nice and cosily warm inside for the travellers!

They could install Central Heating The Romans were the first to do it


There would be no reason for the ship to be layered in ice, there is no water or ice in space.


The rocket can't turn to ice, it will always be made of the steel and other materials it was manufactured from. Nor are there sufficient gases or water molecules in space to coat the craft with ice. And if they're as close to the Sun as Earth is it will be too hot for ice: any ice on the outside will sublimate. Inside if there is no heating the spacecraft will slowly radiate heat away. In Apollo 13 there was water ice in the Command Module because there was no heating there. And in the Lunar Module it fell to 4°C due to the reduced power for heating. But ordinarily the spacecraft can be heated. It doesn't lose heat very quickly because there's no conduction or convection in space, and it's not too difficult to insulate it.


No, because there isn't enough matter between the planets to condense onto the hull of a spaceship in any meaningful way. They just need heating and insulation.


I suppose that the designers of the rocket would have installed some kind of heating. Of course, if I am wrong, then yes, the passengers would eventually freeze. The outside of the rocket has no reason to be covered in ice. In space, it would be bone dry (no water). While descending in the Martian atmosphere, there is not enough humidity in the atmosphere to have any effect. Compared to Earth, Mars is very dry (even if it does have SOME water underground).


Not if they put on a cardy or jumper


They will be fine if they turn on the heat


No people have travelled into deep space.

At about - 460 degrees F. it would be very cold. No sunlight or oxygen, not where anybody would want to be.


There can't be any ice unless there is water to turn to ice. And there isn't any in space. So how could the door freeze shut? The astronauts would get cold, though, and that is what heating is for. Ever heard of heating? A heater is a thing that keeps you warm. Remember Apollo 13? The service module blew up and the ship became very short of power, so they had to save on heating and did get cold.


If there was no heating system in the space craft, they would get very, very cold.


I put my rocket in the freezer and it turned into an icicle. Then an Eskimo hooker ate it


They never get out of the film studio.
