Mars Radiation on the Space Track

Capture

So, I have to thank Rain (boss of the Space Track.) She knows I’ll join in on anybody’s panel and make it more fun. BUT, I really want to talk about radiation. The Martian is “hot” right now, so Mars is a hot topic. (Obviously, Mars is only hot metaphorically or figuratively, because literally it is colder¬†than ice.)

Is radiation important for a Martian Colony? Absolutely. Oddly enough, at NASA we were asked this question many years ago. I wrote the Design Specifications for Natural Environment (pronounced Disney)¬†for some of these missions. I’d love to go over this in great detail…but we’ll wait till Sunday morning. See ya at Dragon Con.
