Rover radiation data poses manned Mars mission dilemma

Mars Rover data has enabled some information on space radiation reigniting the debate over a manned mission to Mars.

NASA published an article on this in 2005 A Force Field for Astronauts? which says

Space beyond low-Earth orbit is awash with intense radiation from the Sun and from deep galactic sources such as supernovas. Astronauts en route to the Moon and Mars are going to be exposed to this radiation, increasing their risk of getting cancer and other maladies. Finding a good shield is important.

A single mission to Mars is going to take the astronauts close to or beyond their current career limits for radiation exposure. Scientists say getting to Mars as quickly as possible would lower the risks

Nasa's Curiosity rover has confirmed what everyone has long suspected - that astronauts on a Mars mission would get a big dose of damaging radiation.

The robot counted the number of high-energy space particles striking it on its eight-month journey to the planet.

Based on this data, scientists say a human travelling to and from Mars could well be exposed to a radiation dose that breached current safety limits.

This calculation does not even include time spent on the planet's surface.

When the time devoted to exploring the world is taken into account, the dose rises further still.

This would increase the chances of developing a fatal cancer beyond what is presently deemed acceptable for a career astronaut.

Cary Zeitlin from the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, and colleagues report the Curiosity findings in the latest edition of Science magazine.

That was one of Annie's pet theories and she ain't here now. :)

I wonder if those people who want to sign up for a one-way trip know about this? - 80,000 of 'em I heard.

That's because they scrimped on the gold covering the cameras. If they had used Cavorite to get there in the first place there would be no issue :D
