They say in space, no one can hear you scream, but that's not the case if you're one of five geckos having sex on a rogue Russian satellite.
The geckos were sent to space on July 19, as part of a mission to test the effects of low gravity on plant and animal life, particularly the geckos' sexual behavior.
