Die russischen Ficklizards from Space sind gestorben. Ihr Satellit ist wie geplant gelandet – wohl eher runtergefallen – und irgendwo auf dem Weg haben sind die Tiere den Weg alles irdischen gegangen. Dies waren ganz hervorragende, ehemals im Weltraum kopulierende Ex-Schuppenkriechtiere. R.I.P. Fucklizards from Space.

Russia’s space agency on Monday confirmed that five geckos, launched into space for an experiment on weightlessness and sexual behavior, have died.

The federal space agency released a statement saying the landing apparatus of the Photon-M satellite had returned to earth as planned, falling into Russia’s Orenburg region at 1.18pm Moscow time, and that the entire herpetological crew had perished at some point during their odyssey. With four female lizards and one male on board, Russian scientists had hoped to learn how zero gravity would affect the sexual habits of geckos.
