  • Abstract Brenner, D. J. and Elliston, C. D. The Potential Impact of Bystander Effects on Radiation Risks in a Mars Mission. Radiat. Res. 156, 612–617 (2001). Densely ionizing (high-LET) galactic cosmic rays (GCR) contribute a significant component of the radiation risk in free space. Over a period of a few months—sufficient for the early stages of radiation carcinogenesis to occur—a significant proportion of cell nuclei will not be traversed. There is convincing evidence, at least in vitro… CONTINUE READING
