R.I.P. Russian space sex geckos.
Earlier this year Russia launched a bunch of geckos into space to study the effects of microgravity on reproduction. They didn’t have a good time. They went up, then they were lost, then they were found again. And now it’s been announced they didn’t make it.
While they’re not sure what happened they believe it was something to do with the systems to keep the animals warm. Either way, poor sex-geckos
Godspeed you interstellar reptilian heroes.
