A new study has revealed that astronauts embarking on missions to Mars could potentially experience permanent kidney damage. The research, led by University College London (UCL) scientists, analyzed the health records of 24 astronauts who had previously journeyed to the Moon. The findings suggest that these space travelers could develop painful kidney stones and may even require dialysis. The study was published in Nature Communications.
