Nasa must study the topic of sex in space, experts have suggested.
According to them, the US space agency has always been silent on the subject of sex in space-how wold it work? Or can a child be conceived in zero gravity? In a chapter, titled 'Sex on Mars', published in the 'Journal of Cosmology', Rhawn Joseph from Brain Research Laboratory in California has discussed everything from social conditions which would push astronauts to make love to the possibility of the first child being born on another planet.
"Human beings are sexual. They think about it a lot. So if you're on a trip to Mars, it's going to be dark out, you will be in a long period of isolation, and there's not going to be a lot to do. There's a definite possibility that it could happen, "he was quoted by the Fox News as saying.
According to Joseph, during a long space trip, undertaken by Nasa, emotional bonds between the astronauts are likely to form-and it would be unwise not to anticipate them acting on those bonds.
Nasa doesn't take a position on sex in space. According to the "Astronaut Code of Professional Responsibility", astronauts are expected to adhere to "a constant commitment to honourable behaviour", but Nasa won't go much further than that.
