The proposal to amend the genes of the crew members of the Martian expedition was made at the Codex Innovation Summit, which was held recently in London. With such-undoubtedly – innovation was made by Douglas Terrier (Dr Douglas Terrier), the chief technologist of NASA. The far-reaching goal of DNA modification is to protect astronauts from cosmic radiation along the way to Mars and on its surface. And cosmic radiation is really dangerous – not being protected from it, it’s better not to go to interplanetary travel at all. This is confirmed by experiments conducted by scientists from the University of California, Irvine. As it turned out, the streams of high-energy charged particles piercing the space, can damage the brains of astronauts and deprive them of intelligence.
