Deep space affects the brain

In space, not only is it cold and there is no oxygen, there are other things that are much more difficult to defend against. The spacesuit will give you heat and oxygen, but it will not protect you from cosmic radiation. Including from galactic cosmic radiation. Yes, such radiation is not fatal, but if you stay in space for a long time, it can have a strong effect on human health.

Scientists simulated cosmic radiation and irradiated mice for 5 months. After that, most of the mice developed a spatial learning impairment. This function in mice is similar in physiology to the work of memory in humans. A blood biomarker was also found with which it is possible to predict the presence of irregularities after irradiation.

This is further confirmation that scientists, when planning missions in space, should not forget about the risk of exposure of astronauts from cosmic radiation.
