The biological effects of space radiations on astronauts are the main concern in deep space missions. Many investigations have been made to find the best way to overcome those problems in extended space travels. There are some studies showing that radiofrequency radiation can induce adaptive responses in human cells and animals during which they become more resistant against challenging doses of mutagenic agents such as high levels of radiation. We suggest that radiofrequency radiation as an agent that induces adaptive response may help astronauts in space flights. Exposure to radiofrequency radiation before or during space missions while choosing the optimised dosimetric parameters such as determined power density and frequency and duration of exposure can help astronauts in their travels. ©2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
