ESA Plans To Halt Aging For The Well-Being Of Space-Travelers

Earth has a number of creatures thriving and perishing at the same time as it is the law of life cycle. With time not only does materialistic things but also human bodies tend to start aging. The human bodies are kind of slaves who have to march until the end of time. Earlier there was nothing available to stop the aging of the cells but with increasing modernization and advancing research everything seems to have fallen in place. The researchers are now looking at slowing the cellular deterioration process and in turn prevent the aging process. As per the International Space Station researchers’ new experiment seems to be the first one to discover the slowing technique.

The man-made nanoparticles would be tested for its potential efficiency in putting up a strong fight against the free radicals that are known to be ones starting the damaging of the cells plus DNA during the entire lifetime. According to the European Space Agency (ESA) has taken up the initiative of finding a new method to stop the aging of the cells to maintain its viability and healthiness. Though aging is a widely accepted process by people across the globe it is still something that the scientific perspective has not yet clearly understood. During the years, everyone has their bodies degrading plus the cells and DNAs damaged, which is the cause for the onset of late-life diseases such as heart or nervous system failures. In the case of aging, the building up of cellular damage with time is the key factor related to aging and this is why the researchers want to prevent aging for increasing their viability.

The free radicals are unpaired electrons known to absorb electrons and damage the other molecules. The oxidative stress causes an imbalance in the body’s chemistry and thus here is where the antioxidants come into play. The control over the free radicals could help lead a healthy and longer life. For now, the ESA is testing the nanoparticles’ ability to attract these atoms and lower the harm caused over time. The space travelers require such particles to remain healthy during the missions to Moon, Mars, or other bodies. In a new study, the University of Missouri scientist mitochondria, small energy-producing part of cells form the basis of a link connecting intelligence, health, and aging provide vital information to researchers cramming on the genetic and environmental influences in order to develop alternative therapies for age-related conditions like Alzheimer’s disease.
