Is it safe for humans to go into space? ISS experiments reveal risks for future spaceflight

Astronauts may be exposed to high-energy charged particles from galactic cosmic rays and solar particle events, as well as secondary protons and neutrons after leaving Earth’s protective atmosphere. Since biomolecules, cells and tissues have different ionization patterns than terrestrial radiation, the associated biological consequences are poorly understood and the degree of hazard involved is subject …
