Abstract

Solar light and especially the ultraviolet (UV) range of the electromagnetic spectrum is an essential environmental factor for life on Earth, for its effects on living systems can be both beneficial and harmful. Studying the effect and the dynamics of solar UV radiation damage on model biomolecules and organisms can contribute to our knowledge on the evolution and survival of life in harsh environments. In order to assess the biological damage caused by stratospheric UV radiation, the experiment presented here tested a new, continuous biodosimetric measurement method on board a BEXUS balloon.
