I believe that is what the Russian gecko-sex satellite was about.

Except the geckos died, no idea why though.
There's a Leopard Gecko Reddit :\

Yeah, they died, but that was still what the research was about. :P

Digitally Imported seems to have discontinued their chiptune stream. Not even a notice, just vanished.
This is a pretty major sad for me, since I don't know of any alternatives.

Apparently the latest females/video games sleeps now, where all threads of her type do :(
The locking of that thread seemed to closely follow certain sleep cycles.
That sounded very close to accusatory. I apologize for any offense.

Tried to go to the gym. Did not realize how late it was until I checked the phone, because it's pretty much uniformly dark from 4 PM onwards. Did not go to the gym. And I'll probably have to lie if my mom asks when she calls, because, apparently, being supportive once in a while is for shmucks.

It's possible if you can create artificial gravity with a centrifuge connected to the outside hull but ya.
One is that zero G insemination is just very difficult for obvious reason then the baby acctually forming would have several defects if they were able to form in the first place
One of those defects being extremely weak bones, children born/raised in space would have very little bone mass because well there's no stress on the skeleton in space so no need to have a heavy stress resistant skeleton
Until we develop some form of artificial gravity.

The main reason we don't know is because of the ethics of the entire thing. Sure they could do animal studies, but that would still leave the question hanging out there.

They have done research in it.
Science channel had a show that talked about it for a bit.
It's impossible for humans to make other humans in zero G, one of the largest problems is the actual sex, this kinda requires gravity or else your just throwing each other around the ship making no progress at all. Then the development in the womb requires gravity IIRC. And once again children born I space basically can't go to earth without major side effects because of their extremely weakened skeletal system

Sure, theoretically. But there's yet to be an experiment on the actual development of space-babies of any species.

Also, bords in space.

Bullshit. Not only can humans maneuver quite well in microgravity with sufficient practice,  there's this wonderful invention called a rope that can be used to fix people in place for whatever activity is desired. Officially, there's been no sex in space (among humans, anyway, rats have successfully copulated although the resulting offspring had issues with maneuvering that normal baby rats did not) but there have been studies on it, and a special spacesuit has been patented for the purpose. Russian researchers into the subject believe that the idea of strictly physical issues are utterly ridiculous.

There isn't much evidence yet as to how badly affected fetal development would be affected by microgravity, or whether any such infants would eventually be able to enter a gravity well. There's a few theories, and the statements you made on that subject do represent the most accepted of them, but there's little evidence, largely due to the ethical problems with gathering such data.

Yes but even in the suits it's not easy.


And here I will stop posting on the subject because I seem to have derailed the thread

I decided to play my 3DS a bit to finish up some stuff I missed while playing Senran Kagura burst, and... Well.

The 3DS feels like trash now after adjusting to a psvita. The feel of the casing, the quality of the screens, the performance of the hardware.... Everything

Kinda sucks since I wanted to play Etrian Mystery dungeon and the sequel to burst later on this year. But I'm gonna have to do so on something that feels like a toy to me now .x

Really? Either Sony's build quality went way up after the PSP, or Nintendo's took a nosedive after the original DS (I don't have a 3ds or a Vita, but have both PSP and DS, and the PSP feels really, really bad by comparison). That's really strange, since build quality's been Nintendo's best feature since, well, ever (even the NES's cartridge tray, as fickle as it could be, was very well built, the problems were intrinsic to the design.)
