Paper Abstract

Outer space is filled with high-energy ionizing radiation. Continuous radiation exposure or slight increase (e.g., due to flares) in it can be hazardous to astronaut health. Therefore cataractogenesis is a possible risk factor. In this paper we apply the sensitive technique of dynamic light scattering to investigate the simulated effects of X-ray exposure to the ocular tissue of non-human animals. An internet web based system integrates photon correlation data and controls the hardware for animal monitoring at a remote site in real time.
