Radiation: Can't Live Without It!
The third of four Web Seminars on the topic of Lunar Exploration was held on Tuesday, November 21, 2006, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. The presenter was Dr. Anuradha Koratkar, Associate Research Scientist at the University of Maryland Baltimore County's Goddard Earth Sciences and Technology (GEST) Center. The presentation focused on radiation in space and how it may affect equipment and humans involved in lunar exploration in the next decade. One of the goals of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission, scheduled for launch in 2008, is to measure the solar radiation at the surface of the Moon.
