New research points to serious concerns about human survival during deep
space travel.

A startling new study has revealed that a troubling number of the lunar
astronauts from NASA's Apollo program are suffering high mortality rates due
to heart disease. The cause? Exposure to high levels of deep space radiation
during their trip to the Moon.

This is the first time research has been done into the mortality of the
Apollo astronauts and it was published in Scientific Reports by Professor
and Dean of the college of Human Sciences at Florida State University,
Michael Delp. The conclusions drawn from studying the deaths of the only
humans that have ventured into deep space casts an immense shadow on the
manned missions to Mars being planned by both NASA and SpaceX.

"We know very little about the effects of deep space radiation on human
health, particularly on the cardiovascular system," said Delp in an official
release. "This gives us the first glimpse into its adverse effects on
humans." Deep space refers to the frontier beyond Earth's protective
magnetosphere and atmosphere where only 24 humans in history-all Apollo
astronauts, have ever travelled.
