Bone Strength Changes in Rats Exposed to Proton Radiation
Once outside the Earth’s magnetic field astronauts are exposed to a range of particles that can alter their biological makeup. Exposure to radiation has been shown to increase bone porosity and thus an increased fracture ...
The Effects of 4-He Radiation on the Material Properties of Bone
NASA has a long-term goal to go to Mars. The long duration spaceflight has many risks to astronaut health, including the risk of bone loss due to the absence of gravity and exposure to space radiation. There have been ...
Bone microstructural changes in rat tibias exposed to space radiation
Human health outside of the Earth’s atmosphere has become a greater concern as humans have lived on the International Space station for over 20 years. Radiation poses a risk to astronaut health, yet there is little research ...
Effect of galactic cosmic radiation on bone microstructural strength
NASA has been looking into new technology for long duration space flight to Mars. Space travel has many unknowns and dangers that are both visible and invisible. Once outside of Earth's radiation shielding atmosphere, ...
Effects of galactic cosmic radiation on material properties of bone
One of the many missions of NASA is to develop a safer agent of space travel for astronauts. According to NASA, the average astronaut will be exposed to anywhere between 50 and 2,000 mGy of effective radiation. In a more ...
