Mitigating the harmful effects of prolonged exposure to space radiation and weightlessness is one the most significant challenges that must be addressed to realize the long-duration planetary exploration missions currently envisioned. Given the fact that the astronaut explorers who will undertake these missions will be exposed to these deleterious effects for up to several years while they travel to and from Mars, it is of extreme importance that effective countermeasures are identified, developed, tested, and proven prior to undertaking such challenging missions (Clément & Bukley 2007).
