Space Radiation is Risky Business for the Human Body

Quote

While people protect their eyes from the sun’s radiation during a solar eclipse, NASA’s Human Research Program (HRP) is working to protect the whole human body from radiation in space. Space radiation is dangerous and one of the primary health risks for astronauts.

“Determining astronaut health consequences following radiation exposure involve very complex processes,” said Tony Slaba, Ph.D., NASA research physicist. “It’s difficult to quantify exactly how radiation is interacting with tissues and cells – and more complicated to quantify and determine what long-term outcomes are going to be in terms of the potential diseases and biological system effects.”
