So, any side effects I should be aware of regarding pregnancy in microgravity?
@PearsonArtPhoto? What should I be aware of regarding the possible side-effects of a childbirth in LEO?
I think we have a question on that...
Say, two astronauts have a relationship, one of them is pregnant, and cannot return to Earth by the time she gives birth. What would happen to the fetus' development as the pregnancy progresses AND once the child is born, what are the legal implications?
A: Does space environment affect human embryonic development?

TildalWaveWe don't know. There was some research done on embryonic development of mice and rats in microgravity, both impregnated females sent to orbit and later recovered (mostly onboard Space Shuttle, but Russians also sent in orbit similar experiments), and even more frequently by using 3D clinostat to ...

Q: Is it possible to get pregnant through natural means in space?

James JenkinsThe Russians did some early testing with rats (Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void, By Mary Roach pg 245) and natural means did not result in pregnancy. Later testing shipped pregnant rats into space, where some health issues developed. NASA research indicates that female a...

Say, is he/she a citizen of his/her parents' nation-state or is he/she a stateless person?
Because I feel like, in addition to any possible side-effects, if a child was born in LEO, it would be a legal nightmare.
Say, for example: what citizenship does the child have?
Does he have the same rights as someone born back on Earth?
I don't know that there is a legal framework for a child born in space question. That could be interesting, feel free to ask it on the main site.

Fair enough.
@PearsonArtPhoto? Done!
Q: What are the legal implications for a child being born in space?

Future HistorianSo, in this case, I asked back in the chat about the side-effects of childbirth AND what legal implications that would have for a person born outside of a celestial body; a "spacer", if you will. So, say that next year, the first human is born in the ISS. He survives the process of childbirth, ...

Here are the patches I got!! They’re way bigger than expected!
@PearsonArtPhoto At least the person answering he your back!
4:30 PM
@Edlothiad Nice. Thanks for leaving a finger in frame for sizing comparison.
How much was shipping in the end?
4:47 PM
Sorry about the pinky, although if it helps, I have very large hands, can do a better comparison later (size wise)
@geoffc it got sent to my mates dad in the us anyways, so that was $3 and from my mates dad here was $4 so 7, more than half than if I did it direct through the site (would’ve been $16)
Good plan.

Last page is finally done.
Okay, time to press a few buttons...
I've published the changes, now just need to give it a bit to clear the cache...
10:22 PM
@PearsonArtPhoto is that second graph, the speed of Starman relative to those objects?
Ok, well I have a main site question coming up then :)
The sun?
Unless it's super basic and I should be able to google it rather easily.
Yeah, I really need to figure that one out...
Maybe my data is bad, I should really look in to that... I think it's a Solar System/ Barycenter type of issue, but I'm not certain.
10:26 PM
If it's a mistake then I won't ask, although I'm really interested.
Well if it turns out to be your data the question can be deleted, and if not maybe a surprise person will appear and answer
I think it is legit, otherwise it would have shown up in one of the other plots.
Ye, I have another question but I fear I know the answer to it I just am not ready to accept it yet
In fact, it must be. The way that the plots generate data is Mars-Roadster, Earth-Roadster, Roadster, where each of them is relative to the Sun.
If it was an artifact, it would show up in the Earth and Mars plots as well. It must be a Solar System Barycenter kind of thing.
I have no idea what that means but I look forward to reading an answer when I wake up.
Might as well answer it now, it will be asked again...
