    For complex-type exchanges, 64 MeV/u neon and MeV/u iron were equally effective and induced the greatest amount of complex damage. Track structure models predict that at a fixed value of LET, particles with lower charge number (Z) will have a higher biological effectiveness compared to particles with a higher Z, and that a saturation cross.   The authors concluded that space flight on Shuttle missions is a model not just of space flight but rather microgravity plus the programmed work schedule. Despite the high EMG activity, the cross-sectional areas (CSAs) of the slow type I and fast type IIa fibres of the soleus muscles of the four crew members were on average 15 and 26% smaller.

By Robert Katz, Francis A. Cucinotta, John W. Wilson, The important feature of this track structure model is its ability to estimate from a limited set. of laboratory data the response of a complex radiation environment with many components.

For example, we have calculated cell survival. Where our earlier model failed downstream of the Bragg peak (for both protons and heavy ions) for want of a proper description of fragmentation the NASA-Langley model succeeds. Based on this experimental validation of our procedures, we have initiated calculations of cellular damage in space flight from solar protons and galactic cosmic rays.

Amorphous track structure models are also used in Europe for heavy ion therapy (Grün et al., ), where the primary endpoint is cell killing.

Extension of the local effect model (LEM) to other endpoints, such as cancer (Eley et al., ), is possible and may result in a European approach to the RBE calculation for space radiation. A Model of Cell Damage in Space Flight, Robert Katz, F. Cucinotta, J.

Cell damage by high linear energy transfer (LET) radiations has been described by a phenomenological model (track theory) for more than 20 years. With track theory, molecules of biological significance (dry enzymes and viruses) act as one-hit detectors.

Elevated DNA Damage Response after Space Flight. We have shown that global low-LET radiation exposure during the space flight was limited (∼4 mGy) and was comparable to that measured on previous flights and on the ISS (58,59). Preflight cytometric DNA damage assessment after exposure to Gy X rays indicated that such low levels should not.

A track structure model of particle fluence responses, which found the peak effectiveness found for ions are for values of Z* 2 /β 2 nearwhere Z* is the ion effective charge number and β the ion speed scaled to the speed of light, and suggested a target with an approximate cross-sectional area of 6 μm 2 or radii of μm.

An example of Monte Carlo code based on radiation track structure in liquid water is provided by PARTRAC, a biophysical code mainly developed at GSF (Munich, Germany) able to simulate DNA damage in human cells based on the superposition of simulated track structures to an 'atom-by-atom' model of human DNA, also taking into account the higher.

heavy ions in the cosmic rays, to the central nervous system in space flight. The coupling of Katz theory and the NASA theory of heavy ion diffusion and penetration through matter, and knowledge of the space radiation environment, has been applied to design of shielding, to the cell damage in space flight.

Using the track model and a deterministic GCR transport code, the biological damage to mammalian cell cultures is considered for 1 year in free space at solar minimum for typical spacecraft shielding.

Significant adverse effects of long-term weightlessness include muscle atrophy and deterioration of the skeleton (spaceflight osteopenia). Other significant effects include a slowing of cardiovascular system functions, decreased production of red blood cells, balance disorders, eyesight disorders and changes.
