Man we waste time in space. the whole of the human race, any and all governments waste too much time in space, we could be going to mars, studying all kinds of spiffy things in Zero G. a bunch of doctors recently did the first Zero G surgery in the plane that simulates being in space. but the people who actually get to space, they’re watching cockroaches fuck and examining the offspring.
Guys, we need to focus here. lets get some cool shit done, we don’t need to make breeding super space roaches a high priority, infact we dont need to do that shit atall! thats number 3 on my top 10 list of things we should not do! according to the researchers:
Cockroaches conceived in space onboard the Russian Foton-M bio satellite have developed faster and become hardier than ‘terrestrial’ ones, a research supervisor said on Thursday.
The article went on to say that the researchers have been monitoring the space-roaches since OCTOBER! I wouldn’t devote a week of space time to this, much less 3 months… Come on guys lets try to do more awesome stuff and way less super-bug related things.
Update: ok, wtf… were getting slightly more awesome, but alot less usefull,
The University of Tokyo & the folded paper plane society are planning to fly a special paper plane model back to earth from the International Space Station. The 30-40cm, 30 gram plane is constructed from paper that can withstand a mach 7 high velocity stream for 10 seconds. A test plane one fifth of the size withstood temperature of 300 degrees without burning up.
