“We are a group of professionals,” said Alan Poindexter, a NASA commander, during a visit to Tokyo, when asked about the consequences if astronauts boldly went where no others have been.
“We treat each other with respect and we have a great working relationship. Personal relationships are not … an issue,” said a serious-faced Mr Poindexter. “We don’t have them and we won’t.”
What makes me think there’s probably no sex on Earth either for Mr. Poindexter?
That attitude is why NASA will never be successful in space. The ONE thing every space geek wants to do is have sex in zero g. When it happens, and it will, the orbital rent by the hour no-tell motel will be an epic cash cow.
