Abstract:AbstractIn interplanetary travel and high altitude flight, humans will be exposed to high energy charged particles from solar flares and galactic cosmic rays. These particles lose energy in a material by Coulomb interactions and nuclear collisions. In nuclear collisions, large amounts of energy are transferred and secondary particles are formed from both the projectile and the struck nucleus. A significant portion of these particles are neutrons which can only lose energy by collisions or reactions with a nucl…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
