Spaceflight appears to induce metabolic changes in all species yet studied, many of which are suggested to have detrimental consequences for crew health and performance. These (mal)adaptations represent a major obstacle preventing the worlds’ space agencies from safely achieving their common goal of sending humans on long duration deep-space exploratory missions, and ultimately the human habitation of other planetary bodies. To overcome this obstacle we must first understand the molecular mechanisms regulating spaceflight-induced alterations and, second, utilize this knowledge to effectively target efforts to develop therapeutic strategies.
