Space Radiation

Space Radiation is made made up of 3 types of radiation; particles trapped in the Earth’s magnetic field, particles shot into space during solar flares, and galactic cosmic rays. It takes the form of subatomic particles from the sun. Radiation can be very dangerous for astronauts. They risk getting radiation caused cancer and more diseases. Pretty much every cell in the human body is susceptible to radiation damage. Space suits can give some protection against the UV rays, but they give a limited amount of protection from the particle radiation and gamma x-ray. If the particles have enough energy they could quite simply pass through the space suit. Radiation is very dangerous to everybody but it’s also pretty interesting.
