Twins evidence space travel changes your genes

according to

Research with NASA on identical twins has uncovered that being in space changes human genes.
Scott Kelly spent 340 days on the International Space station, When his bro Mark remained on earth as a control subject.
However 7% of Scott’s genes, the so-called space genes, pointed to possible longer term changes linked to his immune system, DNA repair, mitochondria & bone formation.
“This is thought to be from the stresses of space travel, that could cause changes in a cell’s biological pathways & ejection of DNA & RNA.
However recent study has shown that identical twins are rarely genetically identical.

Foreign office changes Russia travel advice – here’s what you necessity to know

Brits are too asked to remain vigilant, avoid any protests or demonstrations & ‘avoid commenting publically on political developments’, When in Russia.
New travel advice was issued yesterday following the announcement which Theresa probably has expelled 23 Russian diplomats from the country in retaliation for the Salisbury nerve agent attack.

The latest travel advice comes after previous double agent Sergei Skripal & his daughter Yulia were found poisoned.

Space travel causes changes to genes

as informed in (Photo: Kirill Kudryavtsev, AFP/Getty Images)The stresses of space travel could alter a person’s genetic makeup, NASA says, & the changes could linger even after a return to Earth.
Call it the influences of “space genes,” or DNA which doesn’t return to normal after a sojourn in space.
The January finding was involved in a NASA announcement corroborating a number of 2017 preliminary findings on the influences of space travel on the human body.
Investigators found about 93% of astronaut Scott Kelly’s genes returned to normal after spending 1 year at the International Space Station.
But the other 7% remained changed, even after Kelly returned to earth, signaling space travel could have long-term changes on a person’s body.

‘Space genes’: NASA confirms space travel changes DNA – even upon return to Earth

more-inSpace travel caused lasting changes to 7% of genes of astronaut Scott Kelly, according to a NASA research that compared his DNA to that of his identical twin brother, who remained on the earth.
After returning to the earth, Scott Kelly started the process of re-adapting to gravity.
Most of the biological changes he experienced in space quickly returned to nearly his preflight status.
Some changes returned to baseline within hours or days of landing, When a few persisted after 6 months.
Researchers This time know that 93% of Scott’s genes returned to normal after landing.
