Abstract

Aspergillus was the main fungal genera detected aboard the Russian Space Station (Mir) and the International Space Station (ISS), and fungal growth has been shown to promote biodegradation of the spacecraft materials and compromise life-support systems [1-2]. Moreover, as spore formers, filamentous ungi are a threat to astronauts’ health, and their resistant spores may pose a threat to planetary protection. This makes monitoring and controlling fungal contamination a challenge to be met in the current and future space missions [3-5]. The topic of my master internship at the DLR is: Fungal spore resistance to space radiation and mechanisms by which observed resistance is mediated.
