Russian geckos returning to Earth after a month long sex excursion through space did not survive the trip, reports The Telegraph.
Scientists sent these horny lizards up through the heavens to test the effects of weightlessness on reproduction. They had hoped the trip would be rather eventful (i.e., They had some lizard sex.) besides the incident in July when Moscow lost control of the satellite craft.
Unfortunately, none of these geckos will be inducted as official members of the Mile High Club. On the bright side, the Drosophila flies that were also on the sex trip did reproduce. Bow-chicka-wow-wow.
