  The Near-Earth Space Radiation for Electronics Environment The earth's space radiation environment is described in terms of: a) charged particles as relevant to effects on spacecraft electronics, b) the nature and distribution of trapped and transiting radiation, and c) their effect on electronic components. Background radiation is a measure of the level of ionizing radiation present in the environment at a particular location which is not due to deliberate introduction of radiation sources.. Background radiation originates from a variety of sources, both natural and artificial. These include both cosmic radiation and environmental radioactivity from naturally occurring radioactive materials (such.   The Space Radiation Environment The effects of the space radiation environment on spacecraft systems and instruments are significant design considerations for space missions. Astronaut exposure is a serious concern for manned missions. In order to meet these challenges and have reliable, cost-effective designs, the radiation environment must be understood and accurately modeled. Sheila A. Thibeault's 56 research works with citations and 8, reads, including: ISSUES IN DEEP SPACE RADIATION PROTECTION.

Michael Bagshaw, Petra Illig, in Travel Medicine (Fourth Edition), Cosmic Radiation. Cosmic radiation is an ionizing radiation produced when primary photons and α particles from outside the solar system interact with components of the earth's atmosphere. A second source of cosmic radiation is the release of charged particles from the sun, which become significant during periods of solar. Occupational radiation exposure from the space environment may increase cancer morbidity or mortality risk in astronauts. This risk may be influenced by other space flight factors including microgravity and environ-mental contaminants. A Mars mission will not be feasible unless improved shielding is developed or transit time is decreased. The paper presents the solar modulation of the long-term galactic cosmic rays (GCR) flux and dose rates variations, observed during 14 space experiments by 10 Bulgarian build Liulin-type. production of secondary radiation. The secondary radiation can extend the penetration of the primary radiation and lead to an increase in dose deposition. The most significant secondary radiation is the bremsstrahlung, or “braking radiation,” produced in the deceleration of electrons penetrating the spacecraft. This is a continuous X-ray.
