Put It In The Bank

I know that I am throwing a lot of space stuff at my readers…….one I think it is a waste of money and two some really “crazy” ideas are out there and I want my readers to know about them.

There seems to be a big push of start the process of the colonization of Mars by 2023……now the question is how do we get all those people to make the colonization possible?

There is an answer for that question…there is always an answer….no one ever says, “How the Hell do I know”……

A new study by researchers from the Dexeus Women’s Health research network in Barcelona found that frozen sperm samples survived when exposed to microgravity.

That could mean that sperm banks in space are possible, providing future space travelers with the ability to reproduce in space with sperm samples brought up from Earth.

“Some studies suggest a significant decrease in the motility of a human, fresh sperm sample,” Montserrat Boada who presented the research yesterday at an annual meeting in Vienna, Austria, said, as quoted by The Guardian. “But nothing has been reported on the possible effects of gravitational differences on frozen human gametes, in which state they could be transported from Earth to space.”

  1. I hope all this research comes to something one day, and doesn’t turn out to be the monumental waste of money I think it is.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. The science that came out of the moon project is tangible and beneficial, so it seems the Mars journey could produce similar benefits. On the other hand, it isn’t the only challenge that could help us better deal with life on earth. I suspect the challenges of deep ocean exploration could result in similar survival science, and well, is close by, here on earth!

      1. Lots of minerals for picking on the ocean floors, and gold can be extracted both from the ocean floor or the water, though I’m not sure how that can be done e3conomically….

      1. Roads aren’t sexy, just vital to commerce and travel. What the helkl if another bridge or two collapses and kills a few motorists? Gad, I hate our Congress and their stinking partisanship! Have I prayed lately for McConnell to die, have a fatal accident, or get voted out of office so he’s available to be tarred and feathered back home??? (No, but I really look forward to the day his corrupt self is history.)

      2. Maybe we need to select who’s seed will traverse the universe to Mars. Care to head that committee, chuq? 🙂

      3. I’d settle if they even worked five days a week for at least three quarters of a year. They are a very expensive “club” that really does nothing but stiuff the courts with unqualified ringers as long as McConnell holds the Senate by the “balls”!

      1. You realize, chuq… NASA must consider the physics of donating in space. For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action. Which means… that which is propelled out must react in the opposite with equal force. Admittedly, not all human males.. um.. propel. Some dribble.. and risk floating about and getting snagged in the electronics. I mean.. this IS all for science, of course. Right?
