Video: This short animation Death in Space by Thomas Lucas is a collection of two-second scenes that show people dying in space in the most random ways. It's totally silly, but it's funny because it pokes fun of the careless curiosity of human nature. Yes, we're going to jab that creature that might swallow us alive. Sure, we'll open up this box that might vaporise us. Of course, we'll add another drop into a solution that might explode.
We'll always do these things no matter how dumb it is.
