You're probably not going to see this but I have found something in Portal 2 that may discontinue your theory about the companion cube and the cubes in general if you go into the level build options if you hover over certain components of a level they can come apart and show you what's inside and if you do this with a cube it doesn't show any bodies it just shows them Central core along with some additional circuitry and wiring and stuff which I'm pretty sure the core Powers the cube and in turn has extra circuitry in it which in turn probably wouldn't have enough space for a person to be in it but if you do see this please mention it in a different video or something I don't know or tell me if you have any other evidence Also another thing I want to add about what you said earlier when you said that you weren't sure about if being sucked in space hearing stuff and breathing would be possible and stuff well so the vacuum of space is sucking a bunch of air from Earth out we know that now that air is being sucked into the face of chows and into the surrounding environment so I think they would be able to speak since there's oxygen around them but they would probably be a lot of external noise and since oxygen is rushing into space all around them including ciao she would not suffocate since she would have the oxygen she would need rushing into her my main concern would be the fact that she has no protection on the moon now on the surface of the Earth if we were to stand outside on a clear sunny day we get 2% of the Sun's UV radiation now that alone after like maybe an hour would give you sunburns or AKA skin damage from DNA deterioration but it's so minor that it doesn't really cause that much but sometimes it can cause cancer now that's only 2% the other 98% is filtered through the atmosphere now since they're on the Moon the Moon has no atmosphere which means you're getting a full dose of 100% of the UV radiation from the sun which means that would cause so much havoc to your body you would basically become a giant tumor sort of yeah I wouldn't worry about the oxygen if I were you I would worry about getting sunburned to death

Wait, if EVERYTHING was getting blown into space then it's not just the wind speed Chell would have to worry about Without GladOS there to maintain the facility, there'd be dust and debris everywhere in that chamber All of that would be getting blown at Chell at that 910 mph. She'd be getting sandblasted, nevermind the wind being strong enough to rip her off Wheatley.

You need to take into account though that pilots who eject at those high speeds have flight suits on that do protect against high wind speeds chell however is in a tank top if you ever work around compressed air you'll be told to never blow it on yourself because it may cause air pockets in your veins so she might not die she may still have lasting problems I could be wrong on this but I do believe she would not walk it off just like that

Nah she'd probably die shortly after due to exposure, portal 2 is thousands of years after portal 1, when the reserve power is starting to run out in apature labs. That's why it's falling apart. There's no humans left. She's on her own with 0 supplies. Sure she's in a sunny field buuuuut yeah that's gonna stop being a relief pretty soon

Actually you can survive on the moon without a suit for at least thirty seconds meaning if chell had lung issues or anything that messed with her physical body glados cut it quite close I don’t know if this was on purpose to make chell fear for for her life or she just cut it that close

If anyone is gonna ask for an episode about how chell can survive the bullets, it’s because of how they’re put in the turrets are stocked with bullets. Shooting them out with a spring-loaded shooter is just gonna bruise the body. EDIT: shooting the entire bullet isn’t gonna help either.

The speed calculated at the end is likely ignoring the fact that the building Chell "fell out" doesn't provide infinite air supply, nor does the portal she fell though, so the speed is probably a lot lower. Also, she hangs for a long time behind the narrowest point, which means that the air could already disperse and thus slows down, whcih also means that she never experiences the absolute vacuum of space. Now lets ignore the giant pieces of concrete hurdling at her at high speeds and call it a day :P (Also, please watch the RayCon review of DankPods, thank you)

I am a CHILD. I only picked up a copy of Portal 1 on Christmas Eve, 2020. And I only have $0.48 in my Steam Wallet and in general. If I had enough to buy Portal 2, I would be just as hesitant to do so as I was when I burned my Companion Cube (which I regret, as I saw The Game Theorists' first Portal video 40 minutes prior to this comment). So it'll have to wait until my birthday in 2021 (Happy New Year, btw) when I am legally old enough to work, or when I get money from said birthday, or even next Christmas-time (That's how I afforded Portal 1, along with lots of other things). So, if you want to know WHY I only took an interest in Portal so soon, even though it's franchise has been established as early as 2007, it's because I didn't think of it up until that point. From all my recent purchases made with 25$, I had just about enough for Portal. I beat it in 8 hours. I say it's 9/10, and I can't wait to try Portal 2.

This videos a little old now but did anyone stop to think about how GLaDOS says to Chell way earlier in the game "Here's an interesting fact: you're not breathing real air. It's too expensive to pump this far down. We just take carbon dioxide out of a room, freshen it up a little, and pump it back in. So you'll be breathing the same room full of air for the rest of your life.” So wouldn’t that mean Aperture lacks oxygen... maybe I’m thinking to much into it.

our liquids cannot boil because the circuit must be open, otherwise nothing boils. the only approved death is that, the air sucked in by the vacuum of space drives all our organs (intestine, lung) are driven out (mouth)
