Health Effects of Low Gravity and Radiation

Post by justinh23 » Mon Nov 26, 2018 11:11 pm

How can humans manage the health effects of extended exposure to low gravity and increased radiation? NASA studies conducted on ISS astronauts notice changes in the immune system, cardiovascular system, and bone structure. Routine exercise seems partially effective, but are there any other solutions that make prolonged spaceflight more viable? Do the changes matter for a permanent colonist of Mars or the Moon?
