[Effect of single exposure of the seeds of Lactuca sativa to heavy ions of galactic cosmic radiation at orbital manned space stations "Saliut-6" and "Saliut-7"].

Abstract

This paper presents the results of measuring single heavy ions (HI) of galactic cosmic rays during 40- to 457-day flights of manned orbital stations Salyut-6 and Salyut-7. Cytogenetic analysis of Lactuca sativa seeds showed a significant increase of aberrant cells and cells with multiple chromosome aberrations in seeds hit with HI compared to non-hit… (More)
