Science and technology daily, Beijing, Dec. 8 (reporter Liu Xia) according to a recent report on the website of Newsweek, NASA plans to send two human models to orbit the moon next year to investigate the impact of space radiation on astronauts and prepare for the future Artemis moon landing plan.

During the mission, Zohar will wear a special radiation vest, while Helga will not take any protective measures. The researchers hope to take this opportunity to compare the radiation received by the two dummies and provide valuable information for the future protection of astronauts.

Astronauts on the international space station, which operates in an orbit about 402 kilometers from earth, receive about 250 times more radiation than they do on earth. But between the stars, without the protection of the earth's magnetic field, the radiation effect on human body may increase hundreds of times.

To put human beings into space, only a powerful space vehicle is not enough, but also a series of advanced methods and technologies are needed to deal with the risks and challenges brought by the space environment. Such space exploration is sustainable. Space radiation is one of the big problems that we have to deal with. To solve this problem, we must first study the laws of space radiation and what kind of effects they will have on the human body, and then take corresponding preventive measures.
