Extended time in space changes genes

After A Year In Space, NASA Astronaut's Gene Expression Has Changed. Possibly Forever.

Quote:After spending a year in space, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly is not the man he used to be — at least genetically speaking.

His genetic expression has changed, according to preliminary results from a NASA study that compared the bodily changes between the astronaut and his identical twin, who stayed on Earth while Kelly was aboard the International Space Station.

About 7 percent of Kelly’s gene activity has yet to “return to normal” ― almost two years after his yearlong expedition came to an end.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

As much as I hate to say this, Dan Burish said similar years ago... that essentially going to space would change us radically... turning us into grays. 13.gif
I guess even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Or beings who are capable of deep space travel are advanced enough to figure out how to shield themselves.

I'm still not convinced they were able to go to the moon due to the Van Allen belt radiation. Either that was a hoax, or they used some exotic tech that Wernher Von Braun was privy to. It's more than just coincidence to have a former NAZI be so deeply involved with the Apollo missions.

Meditation and changes in your way of thinking also changes your gene expression.

We're not designed for space.
