Hello and welcome to the Space Health Hazards Forum! The topic discussed here is all about Radiations It may involve but is not limited to Solar wind and Solar Particles Events Galactic and Cosmic high-energy Radiations Stochastic effect DNA damage effects Cancer Risk Immune, medication, nutritional status Genetic susceptibility Countermeasures Van Allen Belt LEO vs Outerspace Let's have constructive and discerning exchanges together along with fun and friendlyness!

Radiation can be a source of problems and a potential use. We could use solar radiation for power and for plants, but we also have to be able to detect flare activity well enough in advance to be able to protect all citizens (if they're not intrinsically protected already).

I can reduce the worry. The problem is "easy" to deal with. First, a little about radiation. For a gross over-simplification think of a pool table setup to go and all the balls neatly in a triangle ready to break - this represents the contrsuct of an atom. Protons, neutrons ...
