  20. Cosmic rays threaten future deep-space astronaut missionsRead the original story

    Wednesday Oct 22 | Science, Industry and Business

    Crewed missions to Mars remain an essential goal for NASA, but scientists are only now beginning to understand and characterize the radiation hazards that could make such ventures risky, concludes a new paper by University of New Hampshire scientists. In a paper published online in the journal Space Weather , associate professor Nathan Schwadron of the UNH Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space and the department of physics says that due to a highly abnormal and extended lack of solar activity, the solar wind is exhibiting extremely low densities and magnetic field strengths, which causes dangerous levels of hazardous radiation to pervade the space environment.
