Understanding and evaluating the physiological effects of radiation and gravity require not only experiments on Earth but also extensive research on the ISS with an adequate number of animals and/or human subjects (Fig. 3).However, further expansion and work on the ISS has been stalled because of cuts in funding by NASA and, more recently, by the loss of the Columbia space shuttle in February Cited by:

Beyond Low Earth Orbit, space radiation may place astronauts at significant risk for radiation sickness, and increased lifetime risk for cancer, central nervous system effects, and degenerative diseases.

Research studies of exposure in various doses and strengths of radiation provide strong evidence that cancer and degenerative diseases are to Cited by: 1.

Venturing into the environment of space can have negative effects on the human body. Significant adverse effects of long-term weightlessness include muscle atrophy and deterioration of the skeleton (spaceflight osteopenia).

Other significant effects include a slowing of cardiovascular system functions, decreased production of red blood cells, balance disorders, eyesight disorders and changes.

Astronauts on Red Planet missions will have to contend with deep-space radiation, the effects of microgravity and the stress of confinement and isolation, all at the same time and for a long.

The radiation environment of deep space is different from that on the Earth's surface or in low Earth orbit, due to the much larger flux of high-energy galactic cosmic rays (GCRs), along with radiation from solar proton events (SPEs) and the radiation belts.

Galactic cosmic rays (GCRs) consist of high energy protons (85%), helium (14%) and other high energy nuclei (). Fulfilling the Presidenta (TM)s Vision for Space Exploration (VSE) will require overcoming many challenges. Among these are the hazards of space radiation to crews traveling to the Moon and Mars.

To explore these challenges in some depth and to examine ways to marshal research efforts to address them, NASA, NSF, and the NRC sponsored a workshop bringing together members of the space and.

In addition to the recommendations above, at a National Research Council workshop, Space Radiation Hazards and the Vision for Space Exploration, NASA was advised to create an "early-warning system" of space-based radiation events in order to better predict events that would necessitate limitation of LEO activities (such as EVAs), crew.

Space radiation is the number one risk to astronaut health on extended space exploration missions beyond the Earth’s magnetosphere. Only 24 human beings have ventured beyond this protective envelope, and then, only for a maximum of approximately 12 days (Apollo 17).Cited by: Inside Radiation.
