NASA prohibits astronauts from masturbating in space: why?

0


A NASA engineer has made a revelation that has shocked the internet: male astronauts can’t masturbate in spacewhich leads us to ask ourselves what are the reasons for this prohibition.

Clearly, astronomers do not leave Earth for that, but to fulfill their missions in outer space, making discoveries, looking for new things beyond our planet and not thinking about touching.

Smythe Mulikan is the name of this engineer from the US space agency who spoke about it on comedian Conan O’Brien’s podcast, Team Coco, after the presenter asked about his moments of privacy.

Yahoo’s website in Brazil quoted the NASA engineer’s comments, who exposed the reasons why male astronauts cannot masturbate in space.

Could female astronauts get pregnant?

According to Smyth, female astronauts could be accidentally affected by stray fluids, and a smaller amount could lead to a bigger problem, such as pregnancy.

This is due to the absence of gravity, which allows sperm to disperse through the air. “Three astronauts can be impregnated by the same man in the same session… the fluid finds its waySmyth added.

The conversation arose after Conan O’Brien asked the astronaut if had ever brought pornographic material to the International Space Station (ISS, for its acronym in English), to which he responded with a very clear: “no, none of that”.

The report also cites a study by researchers at Concordia University, in Montreal, Canada, which argues that understanding the mechanics of sex in space is “essential to the success of deep space missions and the construction of settlements outside space.” of the world”.

The information has a funny tone, but the research details that understanding how sexual relations work in space could help, for example, materialize colonization on other planets.
