Tokyo, June 28(NI): A NASA commander, Alan Poindexter, has said that sexual intercourse on the International Space Station is generally not allowed.
Poindexter was the Commander of STS-131, launched in April.
"We are a group of professionals. We treat each other with respect and we have a great working relationship. Personal relationships are not ... an issue," The Telegraph quoted Poindexter, as saying.
"We don't have them and we won't," he added.
Poindexter and his six-crew members, including the first Japanese mother in space Naoko Yamazaki, were in Tokyo to talk about their two-week re supply mission to the International Space Station.
The April voyage broke new ground by putting four women in orbit for the first time, with three female crew joining one woman already on the station. (ANI)
