Sex In Space

At this very moment, a Russian satellite full of geckos (possibly having sex), is floating above us in space!
"Stop watching, ya Russian perverts!"
The Foton-M4 research satellite was launched on 19 July with five geckos on board. All the Ruskies wanted was to observe how the lizards would "do the wild thang" in zero-gravity. Several other earthly creatures, including plants and insects, were also placed on board for experiments.
But that was far too simple a destiny for the craft. Shortly after it's first few orbits, the satellite stopped responding to commands. The Russians're still receiving data from the satellite about how the lizards are doing, but for now, that's all they can do.
A spokesman for Russia's Institute of Biomedical Problems says experts are working to re-establish a connection to the satellite.
Meantime - above all the turmoil on Earth that Russia is embroiled in - it's bizarre Lizard Space Sex project continues as Mother Nature intended, for the rest of the 60-day mission.
Go, you randy lil' green things, you!
