  • Mat I loved your theory but wouldn't the force of the air pressure going through Chell's Y-axis kill her? I mean, I think you mentioned something like that in The hookclaw video of The Legend of Zelda. Of how horrific and dangerous it would be for Link's body to travel that quickly in a Y-axis. Wouldn't Chell's blood be affected?

  • I’m wondering how chell like got to the surface in portal still alive then woke up in a apartment in portal 2 and Sometimes I wonder how is there portal and portal still alive are they the same or something I gotta play all the portal games in order someone tell me the order of the portal games D: wait I watched a video of the order NEVERMIND but I’m wondering what portal is like is it the same as portal still alive but maybe ur Caroline nah it can’t be I’m dumb for this knowledge I need to go to portal school XD

  • Hey MatPat, you are right that air molecules at room temperature have a mean velocity of around 450 m/s, that however is not the wind speed you would get when opening a portal to space. The correct equation to use for this would be the Bernoulli's Principle that describes the flow of fluids and gases in pressurized systems. If you use this the wind speeds you would get at the portal would be 406 m/s. This would be even more survivable for Chel. On the other hand this will drain a room extremely fast of all its air. A 20m^3 room (like an airlock on a spaceship) is drained in roughly 25 milliseconds, but since there is a whole in the roof this should not be a problem.

  • If the air is traveling faster than the speed of sound then wouldn't the air molecules travel away before the vibration from Wheatley's speech got to Chell's ears?

  • Air was getting sucked out the portal, so maybe right outside the portal there is some air? That would explain why Chell didn't die and why she could hear. I dunno, it's just a theory. A GAME THEORY!

  • 4:00 the oxygen was being sucked out too meaning she might have been able to breathe a little and many because of other particles being sucked out she could hear their voices. Also I think you say it Glad - os. Is meaning operating system she was called glad os Glados operating system of the aperture science facility.

  • Well... Remember how they said they couldn't pump air down there, and were merely recycling it? All the air in that room would have been emptied out, meaning she likely would have suffocated before reaching the surface.

  • Probably you won't get to see this comment, but would be nice to make a video about how chell could actually be a cyborg, other than having artificial legs. Hear me out, we know she wakes up so far into the future that the whole facility is infested with vegetation, a lot of systems failing, so how safe is it to assume that the life support is still operational ( if there was one in the first place ) we know glados sayd there wasnt any oxigen pumped in anymore inside the rooms, we never see food or water anywhere, not even canned military grade food can last that long.. That could also explain why she survived space.

  • Let alone the cut scene between chell being pulled in and waking up to Glados could mean she lost consciousness, but perhaps for only a few minutes to an hour. (Unknown time passage) So it makes even more sense that she survived. As for the air rushing out, keep in mind that Aperture also recycles the air in the facility. So Glados or the facility would recycle that chamber constantly as the air was lost. Thus she could have quite literally survived just fine!
