A scientist said space sex is a "real concern."
One of the first concerns that comes to mind when thinking about putting humans on Mars is probably not sex (or maybe it is, I don't know you!), but according to a scientist and professor from George Washington University, sex is space is a "real concern" scientists need to study more.
Speaking at a recent Atlantic Live panel, Kris Lehnhardt, an assistant professor at George Washington University, said human reproduction in space is an area that is seriously lacking in research. And this is actually a serious thing scientists are thinking about — it's not just about the ~novelty~ of creating space suits built for two. "If we're talking about colonization, there's a key component to colonization that makes it possible," Lehnhardt said. "That is: having babies."
As he explained, if humans are trying to develop serious plans for permanently relocating to another planet (given the current state of things, not a terrible idea!), we need to be thinking seriously about how we'll reproduce. So, yes, while you're going on about your daily life, doing simple things like eating bananas, tweezing your eyebrows, and trying to decide if an Uber is worth it, know that there are scientists trying to figure out how humans will successfully bone in zero-gravity. Do you regret not being an astronaut yet?
