Attention Astro-Parents: Your Spacebabies May Be Deformed

The Journal of Cosmology recently published a special issue concerning the requisites for and perils inherent in a manned mission to Mars, which appropriately touched upon that taboo topic that NASA never talks about: sex in space.

Example: A recent study shows zebrafish embryos brought to term in microgravity develop cranial defects.

The story is too old to be commented.
