Research on rats successful, humans will be able to have children on Mars in future too!

Scientists from all over the world are doing research day and night about life outside the Earth. 

The Scientists have achieved great success in the search for life on other planets. Scientists from Japan have done that miracle, which has given new hope to the possibility of having children outside the earth. 

According to the report of the website phys, when the sperms of rats kept in space for about 6 years were brought back to earth by scientists, healthy rats were born again.

Along with this research, some scientists have now claimed that humans can give birth to children even on the red planet i.e. Mars. 

It is believed that radiation can damage DNA and reduce the ability to reproduce. But a new experiment has changed this perception. 

In fact, in experiments conducted by scientists on rats, their sperm was frozen and kept in the International Space Station with high radiation for about 6 years.

Now these sperm were brought back from the International Space Station. The space rat was born from these sperm. 

These mice were completely healthy. No genetic deficiency of any kind was seen in them. On the space station, rat sperm was frozen at a temperature of minus 95 degrees for 5 years and 10 months.

This study by Japanese scientists was published in Science Advances on Friday. Teruhiko Wakayama, the head of this study, said that the breed produced by the sperm stored in space has a slight difference compared to the earth rats, but would not call it a deficiency.

In 2013, Wakayama and his colleagues sent three boxes of sperm to the University of Yamanashi in Japan. 

Each box contained 48 vials of sperm. Researchers wanted to know, what would be the effect of radiation on them. After about six years, these boxes were brought back to earth in three different batches.

The first box was ordered after 9 months, the second box after two years and the third box after six years. 

Due to dry freezing, the cost of this experiment also came down. Children were born after bringing them to earth and revising them.

Professor Sayaka Wakayama, related to the research, said that genetically many normal children of the rat were born, they were completely healthy.

Scientists say that this is one of the biggest discoveries for human civilization. Another biologist said that there was no significant difference between the space sperm and the children born from the sperm on Earth.
