Mice in space develop thin skin declares a new BBC article—but it isn't that space mice take insults to heart more than Earth mice, it's that, after 91 days on the ISS, the skin of three test mice was actually thinner than normal. Also, the hair follicles on it were stuck in "grow" mode. While only a small scale test, so its findings can't be considered conclusive, it may start to help explain why "astronauts tend to experience increased skin irritation and find that minor wounds, such as scratches and abrasions, take longer to heal." It is thought that these changes are due to the relative lack of gravity in orbit, and they could have serious implications for extended exploration of space by humans—not to mention their mice.
