Famous American astrophysicist Neil degrasse Tyson told about how to have sex in zero gravity.
Taking into account the opinion of a scientist who is therefore engaged in the popularization of science, 2nd Newton's law, which can not be avoided and outside the Earth, leads to the fact that amorous joy 2 partners in space is physically impossible.
During the talk show StarTalk on American TV in astrophysics asked about how the sex takes place in space and whether it is possible to overcome the effect of weightlessness on the body for effective sexual intercourse. Scientist this question does not bother, and he answered with a scientific attitude, without its share of drama.
"Newton's second law, which, as we know, States that the mass of a body on its acceleration equals the force with which it is exposed to the surrounding body - the main obstacle in the way of "normal" sex in space. On Earth, this law does not interfere, because the Earth's gravitational pull makes the bodies to fly away in the wrong direction. In space, however, any contact with a partner during sexual intercourse will cause his body to rapidly move in the prescribed direction until it hit the wall of the spaceship", said Tyson.
The scientist has proposed a solution to this problem for those who try to have sex in space: "the Situation is difficult but it can be solved using the straps. It is necessary to fix the position of partners in space, preventing their continued collision with walls".
Among the fans of the show Neil degrasse Tyson immediately have any calls to turn ideas in astrophysics scale scientific experiment. Surprisingly, if you believe NASA, people to this day haven't had sex in zero gravity. This despite the fact that couple of the astronauts have flown into space. We are talking about the space Shuttle mission endeavour STS-47 in 1992.
