  • Long-term interplanetary space travel and habitation produce enhanced risks to astronauts as a result of the high-energy cosmic rays and protons unmitigated by any thick planetary atmospheres and protective magnetic fields such as those of Earth. The high-energy collisions of these cosmic rays and protons with thick structures and thin atmospheres produce a secondary "beam" of charged particle fragments and neutrons that are more numerous than the incident primary particles. Since 1997, APL has… CONTINUE READING
