Is it true that astronauts undergo "explosive decompression" training in order
to prepare them for potential emergencies while in space? By explosive
decompression I mean exposing the astronauts to zero pressure from, say, 1
atmosphere within a few seconds? Or would that simply give them a terminal
case of decompression sickness - the bends?
