Report No. 153 - Information Needed to Make Radiation Protection Recommendations for Space Missions Beyond Low-Earth Orbit (2006) This is a members only link.

Price: $85 PDF (AAPM Members FREE)
Category: Reports

The purpose of this Report is to identify and describe information needed to make radiation protection recommendations for space missions beyond low-Earth orbit (LEO). Current space radiation guidelines pertain only to missions in LEO and are not considered relevant for missions beyond LEO. Radiation protection in deep space is complicated because of the unique nature of the space radiation environment, which is unlike any radiation environment present on Earth or in LEO. The Executive Summary lists the major information that is needed. A summary of all needed information is included in Section 8.
