Space Travel: A No-Go For Me And Mrs. B.

15 March 2013 @ 22:55

We’ve had various concerns about attempting to travel in space, but the possibility has always remained alive for my lovely bride and me.  We had always figured we could overcome any difficulties and rise to the occasion.  However, with this latest bit of news, the idea has a become flaccid dream…

From The Independent, Steve Anderson reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to Memeorandum]:

With commercial space flights in the pipeline and financiers appealing for a couple to volunteer for a manned (and womanned) mission to Mars, it’s only going to be a matter of time before humans will want to do what we do best up in space.

But according to new research, getting down while we’re way up high could theoretically cause health problems for spacefaring lovers.

James Bond may have given it a go in Moonraker, but experiments on mating plants by scientists at Montreal University show that weightlessness affects the way cells are transported inside living things, causing ‘traffic jams’ on the vital highways that connect different processes.

I’ve got enough problems at my age, so I don’t need any ‘traffic jams’ screwing-up our two tickets to paradise, IYKWIMAITYD.

    Oh, humanity is nothing but a large number would be dirty old men and lustful ladies. We’ll find a way to get it on anywhere, I have no doubt, for the same reason internet giltering is doomed.
