Now that the article's title has your attention (you people have a dirty mind!), let me explain! I came across this article this morning which I find very interesting. It talks about the reproductive system and how it hasn't been properly studied when it comes to the effects of zero gravity.

I find that this is interesting because in the future, we will be exploring more and more of our solar system and possibly be looking for another planet to inhabit. The question is : will we be able to get to that planet and reproduce once we get there?

I think it's an important question to ask!

What do you think?

Where ever humans go there will be[snip] and Fighting

So the answer is yes!

PS I do not know wich space flight, but Nasa admitted sexual inter-cause already did take place in space. (Do not know if it was conceived ;-) Officially voluntary and not a Nasa program.

Take one for the team... Or the team taken one!

I think the human vessle can adapt. With proper exercise and nutrition it can be done.. I dont know this humane vessle hasnt been in zero but I think it may change the offspring overtime genetically as their bodies adapt to new home.

I saw the other day there are currently 2 men and one women up on the International Space station at the moment. I wonder if they have been conducting tests. I mean those guys are up there for a hell of a long time and well maybe they do a few tests all in the name of science.

That's actually the problem. So far the little amount of research they have conducted shows that it actually gets worse the longer you are up there... My guess is that at one point, if the ovarian cells keep deteriorating, then there would be a theoretical point of no return!

lol... I'm sure that they can close a capsule and do what they need to do... I wonder what their idea is of a "romantic" dinner + "lovin"... It's probably microwaved dinner + upside down sex...

Look Ma! No hands!

Explanation: S&F!


The question is : will we be able to get to that planet and reproduce once we get there?


Yes & Yes! Here is why...

TPTB can't Tax you, if you're beyond their reach, out in space! Viable ways to get off this planet. (by OL) [ATS]


1] We have chemical rocketry which will get us very inneficiently of the planet and 90%+ is throwaway at launch!


FAIL!
... Moving on!...

2] We potentially have the Roswell disc's sitting in some far off wonderland! Will we ever get to see it, access it, use it???


FAIL!
... Moving on!...

3] We have nuclear propulsion designed to be feasable in the 1950's under Project Orion!

Project Orion (nuclear propulsion)
[wiki]



Project Orion was a study of a spacecraft intended to be directly propelled by a series of explosions of atomic bombs behind the craft (Nuclear pulse propulsion). Early versions of this vehicle were proposed to have taken off from the ground with significant associated nuclear fallout; later versions were presented for use only in space.




[Note: Please see the linked thread for the ENTIRE technical disclosure ok as there is a little more to it than just that.
]

And now for pseudo gravity effects... This can be achieved under CONSTANT acceleration!

That can achieved with these...

en.wikipedia.org...

en.wikipedia.org...

en.wikipedia.org...


The low thrust requires ion thrusters to provide continuous thrust for a very long time in order to achieve the needed change in velocity (delta-v) for a particular mission. To achieve these delta-vs, ion thrusters are designed to last for periods of weeks to years.

In practice the lifetime of ion thrusters is limited by several processes.


[Note: Edited quoted text to bold for emphasis.]

So the space vehical just needs to Thrust constantly with enough force to produce 1G of constant acceleration!


And since project orion is 4000 metrics tons of REUSABLE vehicle... there is ample room and cargo mass to power ratio to have a small nuclear reactor on board the shaceship and also including the fuel for the Electrical thrusting propulsion systems etc.


Personal Disclosure: And maybe have some Hard Suits to protect us from the hard vacuum and harsh radiation etc!

Not to be crude..

But who wouldn't want to join the Zero Gee club?

All those in the ISS are highly intelligent people, and intelligent people are more likely to have experimental sexual contact than those with more average IQs.

Besides, just think about it: a boner is zero g could last for hours, no cialis required!
