Bad news for all astronauts that read this blog. There is new scientific evidence that sex in space could lead to brain disease, cancer, and other life threatening illnesses.
A study by Professor Anja Geitmann from the University of Montreal looked at the effects of zero gravity on the reproductive process in plants. Because sperm cells in plants are delivered to the egg through a “cylindrical tool”, scientists were able to apply the plant results to the human reproductive process (i.e. fuckin’).
The plants were placed in a spinning centrifuge that simulated both high and low gravity while scientists monitored their reproduction, which occurs quickly in plants. They found that the pollen tubes were smaller in low gravity, and were wider in hyper-gravity. Meanwhile intracellular traffic flow, the way that cells communicate, was badly affected.
