Space Sector RPRA Regional Message Board
Modern CO2 suit scrubbers are basically just a kind of filter (usually lithium hydroxide) that extracts the CO2 going through it, they have a lifetime measured in hours (but they're light and relatively cheap, so easy to replace). You'd fall asleep and die from lack of oxygen long before you got more than a little hungry. Longer-duration vehicles like the ISS and Space Shuttle use a "regenerable" CO2 scrubber in which the lithium hydroxide is then scrubbed of CO2, allowing it to pick up more CO2. So essentially we don't have a closed environment suit design yet.
Other systems that would run out of operational time before you starved would probably include the active cooling system, which cools the suit so you don't cook in your own waste heat (since there's no air in space, you can't lose heat through convection or conduction, and radiative heat loss is much too inefficient to cool you down faster than you heat up based on just your own body heat. In short, space is a really good insulator).
Your suit power supply is also limited, since it's provided by batteries.
The human body can survive for about three days without food or water, and for about twenty-seven with adequate hydration. Your suit will fail far before that. It probably relies on your parent craft for water recycling too, so you're not carrying three weeks of water supplies.
Supposing you had a huge fancy space suit with a radio-thermal generator or photovoltaics for power, a regenerable CO2 scrubber, radiator vanes to shed waste heat, some kind of water recycling system ... well, you'd pretty much have a spacecraft. In that case, you'd essentially be turning your mass plus the mass of your food supplies into poop mass, which can't then be returned into food without also having access to a farm. This is similar to what would happen if you were marooned on the ISS. In that situation, you would be limited by your food supplies, and would last maybe a week or two after your food ran out.
If this sort of thing interests you, I heartily recommend The Martian by Andy Weir. Marooned on Mars, astronaut Mark Watney must use his ingenuity and luck to survive alone on the planet until rescue can arrive.
And it appears that I killed the chat. Possibly through exposure to vacuum.
Eh, you know how not-talky we can get sometimes ;)
In space no one can hear you chat.
Sorry, I couldn't hear you over these belt sanders that we're apparently using to restore furniture.
Unfortunate timing on this world census I think. :(
Damn you, random computer thingie!
But yeah, it's a mess. And I swear, it's like everybody not local enough to riot IRL has taken it to TEH INTARWEBS instead. I had to threaten, in full-on Forum Admin mode, that I was going to recommend to the team that we hand out forumbans like Halloween candy. (Which did seem to tamp down the worst of the nasty last night, I'm sure the effect's since worn off.)
Today's census thingy is SCIENCE! Philae may have flubbed its landing but apparently New Horizons has woken up properly and is ready to tell us more about Pluto soonish.
HAPPY KILLBIRD DAY
Meat is murder!
... Tasty, tasty murder. =9
