December 1, 2008 -- The History Channel will break ground when it airs a milestone episode of The Universe: Sex in Space.
The topic, while crucial to humanity's expansion into space, has been considered taboo for decades of space faring exploration history. However, NASA is planning long-term missions for lunar settlements and, as humans move to explore and colonize space, it has become obviously apparent that space is about more than one kind of thrust; human relationships and reproduction need to be addressed.
Since 2006, space enterprises in the private sector have triumphed with history-making aviation/aerospace milestones such as Burt Rutan's SpaceShipOne and Elon Musk's SpaceX first private orbital launch of the Falcon I rocket. Robert Bigelow's prototype space hotel has been successfully orbiting Earth for over a year.
Space tourism businesses are burgeoning. Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic, the world's first spaceline, is offering sub-orbital flights. Migration to space is advocated by humanity's brightest minds as an insurance for long-term survival. These are a few indicators that the speculated boom in space sex is imminent.
Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku and Vanna Bonta, novelist and inventor of the 2Suit, a flight suit that stabilizes human proximity for various forms of intimacy in microgravity environments, are among guests joining The History Channel for the television premiere of Sex in Space which will cover the topic from the sex act through birth, and may get to the bottom of the rumors to find out if space sex has already happened.
This show is clearly a milestone. It appears that finally the thrust is about more than rockets, humanity is growing up, it's time to have that talk, and this is a new era for the history of mankind.
