I was wondering whether any sort of carbon-based lifeform could survive in space with only some sort of respirator so that it can breathe whatever it needs to normally breathe to survive. If so, what sort of adaptations would the creature need to be able to survive in such a harsh environment? Would a silicon-based creature stand a more promising chance of surviving the vacuum? Is it fair to say that silicon-based creatures could easily exist? Thanks, Lynton.
