All across the Universe high-energy charged particles are found racing in all directions. The source of these particles, collectively called cosmic rays, is masked by the interstellar magnetic field that bends their paths, making them nearly impossible to directly trace.

Radiation Hazards Of Deep Space Travel Quantified By Researchers
2013-11-19 09:06:48

Comprehensive findings on space-based radiation as measured by a UNH-led detector aboard NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) provide critical information on the radiation hazards that will be faced by astronauts on extended missions into deep space.

Prairie View A&M And NASA Goddard Collaborate On Radiation Effects Research

When Alvin Boutte presented his graduate work at the 2010 National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) Aerospace Systems Conference in Los Angeles, Calif., he had no idea that he was about to connect with someone that would be instrumental in guiding his career. In attendance was Anthony Sanders from the Applied Engineering and Technology Directorate (AETD) at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.

Cosmic Rays Origins

Streaming across the Universe are high-energy charged particles, known as cosmic rays. For more than their origins have remained a mystery.

Mexico Observatory To Hunt For Gamma Rays In Known Universe
2013-08-22 07:35:15

A new observatory has begun formal operations in Mexico. The High-Altitude Water Cherenkov Gamma Ray Observatory is designed to study the origin of very high-energy cosmic rays and observe the most energetic objects in the known universe.

DNA Sequencing Microchip Tested For Trip To Mars

Aiming to build a system that excavates the Red Planet’s surface for genetic material, a team of MIT engineers has just successfully put a DNA-sequencing microchip through rigorous radiation trials.

Moon Radiation Study Reduce Health Risks Astronauts
2013-06-12 10:23:11

A new study reports that data collected by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) reveals that lighter materials like plastics provide effective shielding against the radiation hazards faced by astronauts during extended space travel.

Extragalactic Ankle And Galactic Knee
2013-06-03 17:42:35

It is obvious from the data of the KASCADE-Grande experiment at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) that the so-called “knee” of the cosmic rays, a bend in the energy spectrum at high energies, is located at different energies for light and heavy particles.

Radiation Dangers From Manned Mars Trip
2013-05-30 13:20:16

There are many barriers that stand in the way of sending a human team to the surface of Mars. But near the top of the list of dangers would have to be the radiation exposure during the round trip voyage through the solar system. Clearly, a detailed understanding of the exposure levels is key in planning any mission to the Red Planet.

Cosmic Rays -- Cosmic Rays. Cosmic rays are energetic particles that are found in space and filter through our atmosphere. Cosmic rays have interested scientists for many different reasons. They come from all directions in space, and the origination of many of these cosmic rays is unknown. Cosmic rays were originally discovered because of the ionozation they produce in our atmosphere. Cosmic rays also have an extreme energy range of incident particles, which have allowed physicists to...
