Space the Final Frontier

Karen Krukowski, Ph.D


Interplanetary exploration will be humankind’s most ambitious expedition and the journey required to do so, is as intimidating as it is intrepid. One major obstacle for successful deep space travel is the possible negative effects of galactic cosmic radiation (GCR) exposure. We investigate the long-term effects GCR can have on behavioral and cognitive performance in a rodent model system.
