: Moreover, the rush of the air would blast the player into space long before
: he could hop through and shut it. And even if he managed to hold on to
: something so as to avoid terminal free-fall, by the time he could force
: himself through the door, the ship would be de-pressurized.

Who's to say that the level is atmospherically independent from other areas of the Marathon? Maybe there WAS a loss in air, but the sheer volume of air within the Marathon probably negated any noticable effect.

In any case, I think that the designer of this level simply overlooked these details and was more concerned with other, more important things about the level, such as gameplay.
