Japanese scientists managed to produce mouse pups from sperm stored in space for about 5 years. It was stated that the experiment of rat sperm carried into space by freezing and drying showed that sperm can be stored in space for more than 200 years. This is incredible news! I look forward to the next developments.

Japanese scientists studied the reproductive potential of freeze-dried sperm long stored on the ISS to assess the biological effect of cosmic rays and space radiation. Scientists have announced that they have obtained genetically normal mouse offspring without the sperm DNA or fertility being affected by space radiation. The results of the experiment show that sperm can be stored in space for more than 200 years, they said. This is truly tremendous news for the scientific community.
