Fungus found in the destroyed reactors of Chernobyl could be used as a protective radiation shield for astronauts, as it consumes radiation.

Outside of the protective magnetosphere and atmosphere of Earth, astronauts are showered with a twenty-fold higher amount of ionizing radiation—levels that would prove unsustainable without protection. But a discovery at the nuclear accident site of Chernobyl in Ukraine, has offered a possible solution.

I'd have to say that mushrooms are one of my favorite foods; but how about this little item? Just a great big WHO KNEW? from me. If we're going to be messing around up there, it's going to take a whole new outlook. The "protistas" are once again getting in on the ground floor, as it were. Begin at the beginning, as they say!

Firstly, the I.S.S. is NOT in OPEN SPACE. No one would survive thereon, if it were. It is still within the earth's magnetic field, thus ensuring the survival of all on board. Take it out past the earth's magnetic field, and we'd see pretty quickly, what the radiation would do to all on board. This is why all talk of Mars colonisation is strictly, PIE IN THE SKY. Not one human would survive the trip, and if by some strange co-incidence, someone did survive, they'd also need to survive on the surface of the planet, again how this is supposed to happen with the radiation rampant, is never mentioned.I'd like to know, how these ALLEGED scientists expect a fungus to stay attached to a rocket in outerspace,(when the scientific community is unable to come up with an explanation, on how to keep the paint on the F 35 just in earth's atmosphere) how said fungus is even supposed to survive in outerspace, when we all KNOW, any type of fungus needs moisture to survive? There's no moisture in outerspace. Then of course, if by some miracle, humans were to survive the trip,(which I don't believe is possible) how are they protected whilst this alleged fungus is supposed to grow in the dry radiated atmosphere of Mars to a thickness of 8 inches ? No wonder the scientific community is fast becoming the laughing stock that it is today, publishing crap like this.
