      For example, NASA maintains multiple satellites that study the sun, the space environment throughout the solar system, and monitor for galactic cosmic rays (GCRs), in the hopes of gaining a better. Cell damage by high LET radiations has been described by a phenomenological model (track theory) for 20 years and more. Molecules of biological significance (dry enzymes and viruses) act as 1 hit detectors. Recent additions to the class of I-hit detectors are E. Coli B, and the creation of both single and double strand breaks in SV virus in EO buffer, where indirect effects predominate.

      Galactic cosmic radiation originates outside the solar system. It consists of ionized atoms ranging from a single proton up to an uranium nucleus. The flux (rate of flow) levels of these particles is very low. However, since they travel very close to the speed of light, and because some of them are composed of very heavy elements such as iron.

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.

Cosmic rays are high-energy protons and atomic nuclei which move through space at nearly the speed of originate from the sun, from outside of the solar system, and from distant galaxies. Upon impact with the Earth's atmosphere, cosmic rays can produce showers of secondary particles that sometimes reach the from the Fermi Space Telescope () have been interpreted as.

Stochastic risk deriving from cosmic radiation exposure can be estimated by physical dosimeters, using appropriate conversion factors. Recent measurements of space radiation fluence and energy spectra will improve current estimates.

Biological dosimetry can be used as a tool to determine the risk directly from biological damage. Biological effects and physics of solar and galactic cosmic radiation / edited by Charles E.

Geophys. Galactic cosmic rays consist primarily of protons with an average flux of about 4 protons/cm 2 /s and a wide distribution of energies extending to many gigaelectronvolts (Figure ; inset).The flux and energy distribution of galactic protons reaching a planetary surface is modulated by the solar cycle (see The Sun).Sunspot counts are a measure of solar activity (Figure ).

Solar cosmic radiation refers to sources of radiation in the form of high-energy particles (predominantly protons) emitted by the Sun, primarily in solar particle events (SPEs).The solar radiation incident on the upper atmosphere consist mostly of protons (99%), with energies generally below MeV.
