The key detail.
People will be able only once to travel to Mars without a serious health risk.
Scientists estimate that during the flight to Mars and back the person will receive a radiation dose, which is equal to approximately 60 percent of the allowable.
These calculations are based on data obtained from the device Trace Gas Orbiter mission “Eczemas”.
During the trip a person can receive a dose of radiation, comparable to the maximum allowable – approximately 0.66 SV, 95 percent of which are galactic cosmic rays, and only 5 percent of the Sun’s radiation, the material reads.
On Earth, the background radiation is about 2.4 millisievert per year.
