I was thinking no problem with the DNA being preserved then wondered what the cosmic radiation would do.

Falcon 9 departing from platform SLC-40, and destined to transfer a fully laden Dragon capsule for the ISS, within the hour. No attempt to land or catch the 1st stage, this time. Usual link applies.
