In-depth knowledge regarding the biological effects of the radiation field in space is required for assessing the radiation risks in space. Within the last 50 years, space technology has provided tools for transporting terrestrial life beyond this protective magnetic field in order to study in situ responses to selected conditions of space (reviewed in Horneck et al., 2010). From a biological perspective applicable to simple and complex organisms (ranging from biomolecules and microorganisms to humans) various influential physical modifications such as increased radiation exposure were experienced onboard an orbiting spacecraft in low Earth orbit (LEO), out- and inside the International Space Station (ISS), orbiting Moon or on the way to other astrobiological-interesting targets (Mars or icy moons of Saturn or Jupiter). The majority of experiments on microorganisms in space were performed using Earth-orbiting robotic spacecraft, e.g., the Russian Foton satellites (FOTON) and the European Retrievable Carrier (EURECA), or human-tended spacecraft, such as space shuttles and space stations, e.g., MIR and ISS (reviewed in Nicholson, 2009; Nicholson et al., 2009; Horneck et al., 2010).
