Scholars do not know when it was written. The poem has also been published in some other anthologies under the name "Parting. On a personal level, the poem's speaker is telling of the losses he or she has suffered, so painful that they were like death itself.
Anoxia will hit the crew when the atmospheric pressure drops to what pressure? From Living In Space by G.
Artwork by Rick Sternbach. Low pressure is attractive; since it uses less mass and the atmosphere will escape more slowly through a meteor hole.
Unfortunately the required higher oxygen level make living in such an environment as hazardous as chain-smoking inside a napalm factory.
NASA found that out the hard way in the Apollo 1 tragedy. Since then NASA always uses high pressure, they use low pressure in space suits only because they cannot avoid it.
This does raise a new problem. There is a chance that the high-oxygen atmosphere will allow a meteor to ignite a fire inside the suit. There are other problems as well, the impossibility of air-cooling electronic components and the risk of long-term health problems being two.
Setting up the optimal breathable atmosphere is complicated. A more annoying than serious problem with low pressure atmospheres is the fact that they preclude hot beverages and soups.
It is impossible to heat water to a temperature higher than the local boiling point. And the lower the pressure, the lower the boiling point. You may have seen references to this in the directions on certain packaged foods, the "high altitude" directions.
The temperature can be increased if one uses a pressure cooker, but safety inspectors might ask if it is worth having a potentially explosive device onboard a spacecraft just so you can have hot coffee.

It occurs when a person has been breathing an atmosphere containing inert gases generally nitrogen or helium and they move into an environment with lower pressure. This is commonly when they put on a soft space suit or the room suffers an explosive decompression. It has all sorts of nasty effects, ranging from joint pain and rashes to paralysis and death.
The large joints can suffer deep pain from mild to excruciating. The brain can have sudden mood or behavior changes, confusion, memory loss, hallucinations, seizures, and unconsciousness. The legs can become paralyzed. Headache, fatigue, malaise, loss of balance, vertigo, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, hearing loss, shortness of breath, and urinary or fecal incontinence: Why does it happen?
Well, imagine a can of your favorite carbonated soda beverage. Shake it up, and nothing happens. But when you open it, the soda explodes into foam and sprays everywhere. When you open the container of shaken soda, you lower the pressure on the soda fluid.
This allows all the dissolved carbon dioxide in the soda to un-dissolve, creating zillions of carbon dioxide bubbles, forming a foam.
Please note that sometimes the bends can occur if one moves from one habitat to another that has the same pressure, but a different ratio of breathing mix the technical term is "Isobaric counterdiffusion".
Spacecraft of different nations or models could use different breathing mixes, beware. In fact, rival astromilitaries might deliberately utilize odd-ball breathing mixes, to make life difficult for enemy boarding parties invading their ships.
The bends can be prevented by slow decompressionand by prebreathing. Or by breathing an atmosphere containing no inert gases. Slow decompression works great for deep-sea divers but NASA does not favor it for space flight.
An atmosphere with no inert gases pure oxygen is an insane fire risk.MY life closed twice before its close;: It yet remains to see: If Immortality unveil: A third event to me, So huge, so hopeless to conceive, 5: As these that twice befell.

Poet Robert Frost was born in San Francisco, but his family moved to Lawrence, Massachusetts, in following his father’s death. The move was actually a return, for Frost’s ancestors were originally New Englanders, and Frost became famous for his poetry’s “regionalism,” or engagement with New England locales, identities, and themes.

In the poem “My Life Closed Twice before Its Close,” Emily Dickinson raises the particularly daring question of whether anything that happens after death will, or could, outdo the startling events of her life, in terms of hugeness and inconceivability.
