Introduction to Radiation Shielding

In this radiation shielding worksheet, students use a graph of the dosage of radiation versus the thickness of aluminum shielding using data from the MIR spacecraft and ISO satellite to solve 3 problems. They determine how thick the walls of a satellite must be to accumulate no more than a given amount of radiation, they determine the amount of radiation an astronaut will be exposed to wearing a certain thickness spacesuit and they calculate the cost of launching a satellite.
