Mushrooms, discovered at the crash site of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant was sent into space as part of a research project whose aim is the search for protection of people from radiation in deep space missions. These studies leads to Fox News.

“The greatest danger for people in missions to explore deep space is radiation” — the scientists explain. According to them, mushrooms that grow in Chernobyl, perform “radiosintez”. They absorb radiation and convert it into energy.

Scientists from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Stanford University and the school of science and mathematics North Carolina has established a research project in which they used the fungi cladosporium sphaerospermum. They sent a sample of one of these fungi on the International space station (ISS), where a Petri dish was observed by the astronauts.

“The growth of cladosporium sphaerospermum and its ability to attenuate ionizing radiation has been studied on the International space station for 30 days in an analogue habitat on the surface of Mars,” said scientists in the report.

The study showed that the fungus can be grown in space: “growth Characteristics also suggest that the fungus not only adapts but thrives and protects from cosmic radiation, in accordance with similar studies on Earth.”
