Gravity

In the words of Robert Frost, Instructor and Flight Controller at NASA:

“The NASA communications satellites are 22,300 miles above the Earth. The International Space Station is at an altitude of about 250 miles. There is no way to physically explain how, in a matter of minutes, an explosion could take out those satellites and then have the debris from those collisions hit the Hubble Telescope and the ISS.”

Without such a protective suit, you can lose consciousness from overheating. Also, preparations for exiting the spacecraft to work in space take a few hours, so you can’t just unzip the suit to go to the toilet (this’ll prove a very lengthy process). Proof: a post by NASA astronaut Garrett Reisman; a science documentary called “How Space Suits Work.”
