Scientists from Yamanashi University in Japan in 2013 International Space StationHe succeeded in producing ‘space offspring’ from mouse sperm taken to Earth and brought back to Earth in 2019.
It was stated that the experiment of rat sperm carried into space by freezing and drying showed that sperm can be stored in space for more than 200 years.
Japanese scientists studied the reproductive potential of freeze-dried sperm long stored on the ISS to assess the biological effect of cosmic rays and space radiation. In the experiment conducted as part of this review, scientists managed to produce mouse pups from sperm stored in space for about 5 years.
HIDDEN FOR MORE THAN 200 YEARS
Scientists have announced that they have obtained genetically normal mouse offspring without the sperm DNA or fertility being affected by space radiation.
It was stated that the results of the experiment showed that sperm can be stored in space for more than 200 years.
Emphasizing that one of the aims of the scientific study is to evaluate whether it is possible to reproduce in space or on other planets after long space travels, scientists stated that living animals or cells are not suitable for this experiment.
Sperm were developed by the US Department of Defense during World War II to transport blood plasma and penicillin over long distances without harming them, when they were taken to space by freeze-drying in 2013 and returned to Earth in 2019.
HOPE FOR HUMANITY
“Space pups did not show any differences compared to ground control pups, and their next generation did not show any abnormalities,” the article published as a result of the experiment used.
