Russia’s space agency confirmed this week that a group of geckos that were launched into space in July in order to study “the effects of weightlessness on lizard mating” didn’t survive the journey. What do you think?

“At least they died doing what we loved subjecting them to.”

“In any event, we’re one step closer to kind of learning what happens to every type of animal when you send them to space.”

“Great story, but I’m not going to buy your dead geckos.”
