All Space Geckos Die Aboard Russian Space Flight


The Moscow Times said:

Every last one of Russia's famed reptilian cosmonauts, known affectionately as the "sex geckos" owing to the carnal nature of their space voyage, has died, the Federal Space Agency revealed Monday.

The geckos had been on a two-month mission launched to facilitate research on the effects of zero-gravity on reproductive systems.

I heard the Iranians sent a turtle into space ... and later a monkey.   (Should have done em together, they could have used the turtle as a helmet for the monkey) ;

And if a bird can speak, who once was a dinosaur,
and a dog can dream; should it be implausible
that a man might supervise
the construction of light
