Stochastic radiation effects following exposure to heavy ions and other high linear energy transfer (LET) radiation in space are a matter of concern when the long-term consequences of space flights are considered. This paper is an overview of the relevant literature, emphasizing uncertainties entailed from estimates of relative biological effectiveness (RBE… CONTINUE READING
