Description

Hazards and Countermeasures In Space Missions

Since the Mars Science Laboratory (Curiosity) landed on Mars, there is increasing interest as to whether humans can travel to our neighbouring planet. This presentation will outline the known hazards in outer space missions and draw attention to the issues of incessant radiation, microgravity effects, shielding inadequacy, and the psychological effects of a long lonely journey. The presentation will also outline the countermeasures for each, and the most up‐to‐date research currently being conducted.
