- Answer Key
- Join to access all included materials
In this Mars radiation activity, high schoolers use data from the Mars Radiation Environment Experiment to solve 4 problems. They determine the total radiation dosage during a specific period of time, they determine the dosage during the observation period and they determine the dosage of radiation for an unshielded astronaut orbiting in space. They compare the radiation of solar proton events and galactic cosmic rays.
