NASA is Sending Sperm into SPACE

Strange things have been known to happen around Friday the 13th and sending sperm to space can now be added to the list.

NASA is sending human sperm to the International Space Station to see if people can conceive in orbit, seems like an odd thing to think about, but if people can conceive in orbit imagine all the sc-fi movie goodness that could actually be achieved! Multiple generations could all live aboard a large cruise ship style spaceship while traveling across the universe someday. 

Apparently previous experiments used bull or sea urchin sperm, but this marks the first time (that we know) where human sperm has been in space.  The launch is titled  "project Micro-11" and should help figure out if space babies could really be a thing!
