Abstract
Exposure to radiation from high energy protons and particles with ionizing properties is a major challenge for long-term space missions. The specific effect of such radiation on hematopoietic cells is still not fully understood. A number of experiments have been conducted on ground and in space. Those experiments on one hand, measure the extent of damage on blood markers. On the other hand, they intend to quantify the correlation between dose and energy from the radiation particles, with their a...
