It is beleived that the body of an astronaut will drastically change due to Mars’s weaker gravity, and rays from space never-before experienced by people on Earth.
And Kevin Fong of UCL has even more bad news for astronauts of the mission, saying: “Deprived of gravitational load, bones fall prey to a kind of space-flight-induced osteoporosis. And because 99 percent of our body’s calcium is stored in the skeleton, as it wastes away, that calcium finds its way into the bloodstream, causing yet more problems from constipation to renal stones to psychotic depression.”
