R E C E N T D I S C U S S I O N S on aero medical problems of space travel (Armstrong, Haber and Strughold 4) have called attention to the possibility that cosmic rays in the stratosphere and in space may influence stratosphere planes, rockets, space ships and their freight (humans, animals and plants). There is no doubt--as shown by Hess and Eugster 28 in their report, "Cosmic Radiation and Its Biological Effects"-that cosmic radiation under special conditions, especially by shower-formation… CONTINUE READING
