NASA Selects Nine Space Radiobiology Research Proposals

Washington, DC--(ENEWSPF)--October 3, 2014. NASA's Human Research Program will fund nine proposals for ground-based research that will help enable extended and safer human exploration of space by quantifying and, ultimately, reducing the risks posed by space radiation.

Using beams of high-energy, heavy ions that simulate space radiation, the research will employ new experimental approaches to understand better the role of space radiation in the development of cancer, heart and circulatory disease, and long-term cognitive function problems.
