      European Space Agency That's the explanation in normal language of what is described in full with formulas, etc. in the physics abstract mentioned in one of the comment lines.

      Peter Caltner True, although it is certainly interesting to hear what Paolo himself has to say about it!

      a proposito di raggi, qualcuno sa dire che ordine di grandezza ha il rateo di dose X e Gamma a bordo della ISS??

      Ma quante SD ti sei portato ? hai la navicella piena di schede x fare le foto ??????

      European Space Agency I particularly appreciate the astronauts telling their impressions and how certain photos have been made. Unique experiences, to become envious .... ;-)))

      iorek ♫ Gamma ray and X ray doses on board of the station are monitored permanently. Procedures are occasionally described in the daily ISS status reports by NASA. You can be sure that the levels certainly are below hazardous risks. ESA has conducted the Matroshka experiment about this in 2004 ff, also relating to the risks during space walks. Such research also is useful for the flying personnel in aircraft. You will find detailed information by googling "Matroshka".

      Peter Caltner thanks a lot man!!!
      i've found some interesting stuff about Matroshka...
      it seems the equivalent dose rate onboard the ISS is about 1mSv/day.
      i'm into a "radiation related" job, our limit is 20mSv/year, so i think the dose rate on the ISS is quite high.... btw that's probably part of the price to pay to have such an incredible experience :)
