A team of NASA researchers has developed a technique to predict radiation risk on the International Space Station(ISS) for future exploration missions. ISS Medical Monitoring study of astronauts demonstrate how the sensitivity of an astronaut’s DNA to radiation exposure on Earth can predict their DNA’s response during spaceflight.
Space radiation originates from three primary sources: particles trapped in the Earth’s magnetic field, particles shot into space during solar flares, and galactic cosmic rays.
