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.
Measuring the number and energy of each particle of light or photon since the Big Bang could provide secrets about the nature and evolution of the Universe, such as how similar or different ancient galaxies were compared to the galaxies today.

Nuclear fallout, or just simply fallout, known also as Black Rain, is the residual radioactive material that is propelled into the upper atmosphere after a nuclear black or a nuclear reaction that is conducted in an unshielded facility. It is so called because it "fall out" of the sky after the explosion and the shock wave have passed. It most commonly refers to the radioactive dust and ash that is created when a nuclear weapon explodes, but such dust can also come from a damaged nuclear...
Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...
