Radiation Protection – how to survive a journey to Mars by Dr Elizabeth Cunningham.
As our society becomes more dependent on satellites and GPS, space
weather and the radiation environment around the Earth become more
important to our everyday lives. For human exploration of the Solar
System it is crucial that we develop ways to protect our astronauts
from extreme space weather. We will look at how space weather has
influenced the history of human space exploration and how we may
have to delve into the realm of science fiction to protect the next
generation of astronauts on their journey to Mars.
