    About This Project

    One of the major hurdles for creating sustainable life for Mars is the development of radiation hardy plants. Fungi have pigment eumelanin to block ionizing radiation (IR). Melanin protects DNA, proteins, & metabolites from direct IR and from the indirect oxidative damage it causes. This project asks if it is possible to create ionizing radiation-resistant plants using the same pigment from fungi.

    It has nothing to do with SPACE. Thank you creative licence team of experiment dot com.
