Is Space Travel Covered?

Russia sent 5 geckos, amongst other small creatures, to space in order to study the animals sex habits in zero gravity. The satellite was recently brought back and the geckos were all dead, possibly due to freezing. Ok, first, if you are studying sexual activity why send an odd number of participants. Second, who did not know it is too cold for geckos in space? Yeah, yeah, they knew, but they sure didn't prepare for it sufficiently. Thirdly, were they insured by Geico??

One pair of geckos is in on corner going at it. Another pair is in the other corner just a doin' it. Number 5, the odd man (or woman) out, in the 3rd corner shivering says, "Hey, is it getting cold in here or is it just me?" :lol:

I'll bet that there were 4 shes and a he in the gecko mix. The males are extremely territorial and will fight at the drop of a hat. It's fun watching them posture and display just like the dragons they are.

Optimum would be 5 synchronous hermaphrodites.

Fourth, why, exactly, do they need to study animal sex habits in zero-g? Are the Russians building an interplanetary Noah's Ark? What do they know? I'm scared.

Would the geckos know they were in zero g's? I mean their feet stick to everything! :lol: :coolsmile:
