modulation of radiogenic damage by microgravity: results from sts-76The STS-76 (Shuttle-Mir 3) spaceflight provided an opportunity to test two questions about radiation responses in C. elegans. First, does the absence of gravity modify the dose-response relation for mutation and chromosome aberration and second, what are the features of the mutation spectrum resulting from exposure to cosmic rays? These questions were put to the test in space using the ESA "Biorack" facility which was housed in the Spacehab module aboard shuttle Atlantis. The mission flew in March, 1996 and was a shuttle rendezvous with the Russian space station Mir.
