Mitochondrial changes key to human health problems in space | Sci Tech Daily

Scientists discovered that Mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell, experiences change during spaceflight and may be the cause of human health problems. The first clue about the connection between mitochondria and spaceflight came from research using rodents where they noticed mitochondrial dysfunction in a separate space mission. This research may help astronauts live safely in orbit and they are working on studying a drug and countermeasures to mitochondrial disorders to see how they will work in space.
