Effect of Space Environment on Pathogenicity

Spaceflight shown to alter ability of bacteria to cause disease, Arizona State University

"Space flight has been shown to have a profound impact on human physiology as the body adapts to zero gravity environments. Now, a new study led by researchers from the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University has shown that the tiniest passengers flown in space--microbes--can be equally affected by space flight, making them more infectious pathogens."
