Aim 1: Identify metabolic perturbations in gastrocnemius and quadricep muscles through

metabolomics relating to space radiation and/or the μG analog HU, with focus on energy and

mitochondrial related pathways.

Aim 2: Determine whether the combined effects of radiation and HU exhibit an additive or

synergistic effect in metabolic pathways, with emphasis on cofactors that can be explored as
