Itís not really why he signed up to be an astronaut, but like it or not, Mike Barratt and his eyes have become a science project.

The eye charts he reads, the red drops that turn his eyes yellow and the ultrasounds being performed on him could determine whether he or any other astronaut ever journeys into deep space or sets foot on other worlds.

NASAís new priority is how to protect astronauts from going blind on the years-long trip to get wherever they are going.

...

In the past few years, about half of the astronauts aboard the international space station have developed an increasing pressure inside their heads, an intracranial pressure that reshapes their optic nerve, causing a significant shift in the eyesight of male astronauts. Doctors call it papilledema.

Female space travelers have not been affected.

Some of the astronauts slowly recover. Others have not.

As if having your spooge weightless and floating around isn't bad enough.

Space exploration is fraught
With dangers when you're a Gaynaut
If you have the right stuff
You're soon in the buff
Volunteering for every Moon shot.

Ah, yes. Getting ever closer to my fantasy of an all-woman crew alone on a deep space mission. Whatever will they do?

C'mon guys ... Gaynauts. Get it? Gay-nauts? Like Astro-nauts, only Gay-nauts forced to volunteer for a "moon shot"? Get it? "Moon shot"?

I don't get it. Are you saying that homosexual astronauts don't face the same types of vision problems and so they should be the choice for moon missions and other long-term missions?

Please don't kill my dream of all-female deep space crews with no men within a million miles.

Okay. This is ridiculous.

"Astronaughty?

"Moon tang"?

I give you guys freaking "Gaynauts" and super clever, original innuendos about moon shots in the buff in limerick form where the damn meter is perfect and everything and I get nothing. Nada. Then, you guys come back with "Moon tang"? Good God. What has happened to this place?
