Scientists are actively exploring the possibility of human reproduction in space, just as a group of Israeli researchers have managed to grow a human embryo model without sperm or egg.

Researchers in Israel managed to grow “complete” models of human embryos by reprogramming stem cells to mimic the process of life, according to a new report.

They were able to do this without the aid of a sperm and egg, but by mixing the stem cells – which they had chemically turned into four types of cells that became the fetus, placenta, yolk sac, and extraembryonic mesoderm – into a specific baby making cocktail.
