In 2018, Japan sent 12 mice into space. Now that they have returned to Earth. Half of the mice sent into space were genetically modified to have no Nrf2, while six remained with Nrf2 (nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2). They were transported by the SpaceX Falcon rocket and stayed in space for 31 days.
Scientists say they have discovered what could be the solution to slow the process of human ageing. Savants hope the new discovery will lead to new treatments for diseases such as Alzheimer's and dementia.
