Study: Collateral Damage from Cosmic Rays Increases Cancer Risks for Mars Astronauts

University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV)

The cancer risk for a human mission to Mars has effectively doubled following a UNLV study predicting a dramatic increase in the disease for astronauts traveling to the red planet or on long-term missions outside the protection of Earth's magnetic field. New predictive model, published in Scientific Reports, shows radiation from cosmic rays extends from damaged to otherwise healthy 'bystander' cells.
