  6. Ultra-Lightweight Multifunctional Magnesium Alloy Shielding Structures

    SBC: Innovative Space Technologies, LLC.            Topic: H1101

    Radiation from GCRs and Solar Flares provide a hostile ionizing environment for personnel and vital electronic systems. The effects of this environment has been a topic of research for many years. Issues include the exposure for humans under acute and continuous exposures and the radiogenic cancer risk that rises with total dose and is a limiting constraint on long-duration missions. The propose ...
