NASA has already started preparing for its mission accomplishment of conquering the extraterrestrial planets including Moon and Mars. Though the mission of preparing a roadmap to the deep space will take place in the upcoming decades. However, prior to the journey, the investigators from the space centers have made it a point to study the human body’s response to the surrounding atmospheric change in space is important.
The astronauts cannot be sent on a journey to space without confirming the chances of survival in the outer space or extraterrestrial land. For making it possible for the humans to reach their destination that is Mars the researchers have been studying the space and human spacefarer’s interdependence. According to scientists from the Georgetown University Medical Center, the gastrointestinal (GI) tissues’ functions are altered when bombarded with galactic cosmic radiation (GCR) which in the long run may lead to cancerous growth in the colon or stomach. Thus, it is important for the humans who are generally protected from the Earth’s magnetosphere to make use of the technology to prepare shield from the greater mass iron and silicon photons when in outer space. As per the conducted study, the GI cells showed DNA damage, oxidative stress, and inflammatory molecules causing more damage when exposed to the iron radiation. It is for this reason that the space companies have to develop a technology or a medicine so as to protect the gut of humans from the radiation damage.
Lately, NASA’s Delta 4 heavy named The Parker Solar Probe is on its way to the Sun in spite of being aborted during its previous launch due to the helium system problems. The rocket will help to get a better understanding of the Sun’s weather, solar wind, and other activities taking place on the ferocious beast present in our solar system. The next 7 Years Parker will be taking dips into the Sun’s corona that is the outer atmosphere to gather data regarding the crucial impact of the Sun’s unpredictable weather on the Earth and its orbiting satellite.
