Space impacts on Human Health
Concerning The term “environment” we do not only refer to the nature that surrounds us and (animals, plants etc.) but also to space. Specifically, the evolution of life on Earth is a result of a sequence of events occurring in the universe interacting with the conditions of our planet (mass, distance from the Sun etc). Supernova explosions, formation of stars, planetary systems, even the fall of meteorites and comets had a major impact on the evolution of life in Earth. However, the maintaining of life depends heavily on cosmic radiation, which is of extraterrestrial origin and involves supernova star explosions, γ-ray bursts and cosmic background radiation (CBR) after the Big Bang. In this research the nature of cosmic radiation (CR) and its effects on human health and technology will be discussed.
