Volume 7, Issue 2 , June 2023, , Pages 39-47

https://doi.org/10.30699/jtae.2023.7.2.5

Abstract
  The atmosphere of the Red Planet or Mars contains 95% of carbon dioxide, 3% of nitrogen, 1.6% of argon and only a small amount of oxygen, and in terms of concentration is about one percent of the planet's atmosphere, which makes it virtually impossible for humans to live and survive on Mars. Therefore, ...  Read More

Effect of Space Environmental Stresses on DNA Damage and Stress Response Mechanisms in Plants

Halimeh Hassanpour

Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2022, , Pages 1-6

https://doi.org/10.22034/jtae.2022.129740

Abstract
  Microgravity and cosmic radiation are the space environmental stresses which can cause DNA damage in living organisms. Radiations injuries the cell DNA directly through the interaction of charged particles with DNA molecules or indirectly by the production of free radicals. In addition, radiation can ...  Read More

History of Plant Exploration Scientific Missions: Goals and Technologies

Fateme Mousavi

Volume 5, Issue 2 , August 2021, , Pages 1-9

https://doi.org/10.22034/jtae.2021.120513

Abstract
  Recent advances in technology and the construction of new spacecraft have paved the way for a more detailed study of plants under real space conditions. The study of the growth and development of plants in space began in the 1950s by the Russians and the Americans. In the 1970s, the first plant experiments ...  Read More
