Do you think a human will be born somewhere other than Earth before 2050?
I think you guys are being very short sighted. With our rapid loss of resources we are going to be looking to colonize somewhere else. We aren't on Mars to fill Nasa's photo album.
Do people not know about the Annunaki? Sad.
I'd project it more by 2100
I'd be willing to bet against that for a fairly large amount.
If NASA wasn't payed pennies on the dollar then maybe.
Maybe space...theoretically the moon...but that's it.
By then space travel will most likely be a commercial thing, and I have no doubt someone will travel to space to have their baby just so they can be the first.
Being born somewhere (and being raised) which has gravity significantly different than that on earth, the infant would physically grow in an unnatural and dangerous way
As soon as private vehicles enter space and the method of travel isn't rocket...someone is bound to do it on purpose.
Seems unlikely, because you'd need a reason to want to do that. That is, you'd need to be trying to populate a permanent colony, where having the functional human a dozen or more years hence would be worth carrying the dead weight until then.
Or you might just want to put your name in the record books as 'the first person to give birth somewhere other than earth'.
I'm thinking it will be a bit farther in the future than 2050.
www.businessinsider.com/pornhub-is-making-a-sex-tape-in-space-2015-6 Probably not but that's pretty kool.
Can't wait for the first human/alien sex tape
Sadly, that plan totally fell through and there is no space porn planned for near future.
Not with that attitude
logic, it may not be a sex tape, but what you suggest happened in the movie "Species"! Clearly, there aren't any POV close-ups, but it's a start!😃
That was hot
It may have already happened
If they are they would need to simulate our gravity and atmosphere perfectly even during the pregnancy. Our bodies develop accordingly to it. If you were in the womb in low gravity or atmosphere of space, you would either come out pretty messed up (bone density, muscle strength, ect.) or dead.
35 years doesn't quite feel like enough to me. But then again, a lot can happen in 35 years. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. :)
True. 35 years ago there was practically no such thing as the personal computer.
Maybe in 100 years.
Maybe 2075, not 2050. Too soon.
I wouldn't be surprised if some celebrity paid for a trip to space just to give birth there.
Let's see, well, Madonna is too old. And by 2050 she'll be in her early 90's. By then even Miley will be too old. Honestly I don't think the ideal candidate has been born yet.
I think a permanent Moon base is certainly possible before 2050. It's just a question of whether or not any woman will be permitted to give birth there.
Maybe in space on the ISS, but not on another planet.
What about the Moon?
In 35 years? No. But what do I know.
Maybe by 2100 on Mars or the moon.
I'm goin' with "Probably not", and perhaps a bit closer to highly unlikely, by 2050. Early data is not good...
Will a baby girl born in 2025 give birth to a child in 2050? I suppose it's possible. I don't think it's likely, but it is possible. What about the child developing good musculature in a zero-gravity environment? and a myriad of other issues.
If we funded NASA better
Maybe if the US would actually help their space program
Great poll. And I sure hope so.
Ok maybe I dreamed it, but I thought I remember seeing a headline about a baby born on the international space station?
Nobody has been born in space, you probably dreamed it.
Surprised there isn't already. Humans have already had sex in space
Self administered likely, intercourse not.
-Neil DeGrasse Tyson says intercourse would be difficult, at best, and likely requiring the use of belts/straps to help keep the two subjects together;
-Harry Stine, a former Nasa technician, recalls in his book "Life in Space" how weightless sex was simulated - after hours - in a buoyancy tank used for astronaut training. 'It was possible but difficult,' he said, 'and was made easier when a third person assisted by holding one of the others in place.'
Sounds like it could get a bit kinky in zero gravity!😅
So, humans have already had sex in place? Do you know if they were American or Russian or some other nationality? If they were American I bet NASA would require the couple to be married, otherwise they'd have to keep the project under wraps just to prevent future funding in this area from being diverted to other research in progress.
-There has been one married couple, Mark C. Lee & N. Jan Davis who met at space training camp and were secretly wed just prior to their mission aboard Space Shuttle Endeavor (STS-47). NASA does NOT allow married couples, but were informed far too late to change the mission. They have NEVER spoken of any unsanctioned 'activity', while on mission;
-Per NASA Commander Alan Poindexter, sexual intercourse is NOT permitted aboard the ISS.
I know... PornHub had already funded and lined up the plan to be the first porn company to shoot a video in space. They have the actors all picked out and everything. I'm not sure if it happened already or not.
Yep gonzoboy that was my reference. It's more than likely intercourse has occurred
Also Neil Degrasse Tyson doesn't know what he's taking about. He's never been to space
Correct, Bert. When DeGrasse made this comment, he was basing it on the known physical dynamics and limitations in a weightless environment, as opposed to personal experimentation. Though I agree with you as to his experience, I find what he said to be both humorous, and sensible.
mikey, I just checked your link and I just KNEW Branson had something to do with this! When I saw PornHub and Business Insider in the same link, there could only be one connection!😂
He already has plans to be the first wedding chapel in space!
