The radiation dose from galactic cosmic rays during a manned mission to Mars is expected to be comparable to the allowable limit for space shuttle astronauts. Most of this dose would be due to galactic cosmic rays with energies • i GeV nucleon -1, with important contributions from heavy nuclei n spite of their low abundance relative to H and He. Using instruments on NASA's Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) spacecraft, we have made the most statistically precise measurements to date of the… CONTINUE READING
