If Starman had been human and not a dummy, what would their state be now? Preserved or decayed? Dried? Frozen?

  • $\begingroup$ A sealed suit would prevent total drying. But the suit is aging under intense UV radiation from the Sun and will leak sometimes. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ space.stackexchange.com/questions/7827/… May be relevant to answer the temperature question. Most likely, Starman is sub-zero. Additionally, all space suits have a non-zero leak rate so there is likely no atmosphere left inside the suit, no matter how sealed it was. $\endgroup$
