Welcome to 2019, where anything seems possible—including a baby born in space.
Biotech and mission development company SpaceLife Origin has big plans set for the next few years. The Netherlands company wants to send a pregnant woman to space to give birth by the year 2024, The Atlantic skeptically points out.
“A pregnant woman will give birth in outer space—well-prepared and safely supported by a medical expert team,” the website boasts.
Mission Cradle is expected to last 24 to 36 hours, and in that timeframe a woman will give birth 250 miles above Earth. SpaceLife Origin is confident it will have a carefully planned and monitored procedure similar to standards in western medicine, reducing any potential risks.
