0000072044 00000 n “It’s motivating to me to think about all the incredible science that can be done on the moon in the exploration that could be possible.”. "Deep Space has a really unique environment and is more dangerous than low-Earth orbit, so we have to consider things like increased radiation...it forces us to come up with innovative solutions," Hopkins said during an online panel Wednesday during the annual International Astronautical Congress. Comparing the radiation dose she receives with that of Helga, scientists aim to understand how to better protect future crews. 0000023047 00000 n ��q�h���b%S_�lE-�h9�6�C��ʾ����ql2��}�1ŧ�E(U3�# ��ag�&!�[.l�/5Z����� �δozLs�}��l So bone loss, muscle loss and the radiation as you don’t have the atmosphere of the Earth to protect you,” said Laurence Price Deputy Program Manager at Lockheed Martin. 0000017156 00000 n NASA plans to send launch its Space Launch System rocket and Orion capsule in an uncrewed Artemis test flight from Florida to the moon in late 2021. 0000068971 00000 n “In deep space the challenges are zero gravity and a radiation environment. The capsule for that flight was delivered in March to Kennedy Space Center in Florida, while the SLS rocket awaits further testing in Mississippi in November. To come up with a radiation shield, Lockheed Martin, NASA and the National Institute of Aerospace (NIA) created the Orion spacecraft Exploration Design Challenge for high school students. 0000069274 00000 n 0000002593 00000 n Astronauts on the International Space Station receive doses 250 higher than on Earth. Shelter in space. Matt Lemke, Orion avionics, power and software deputy manager, discusses how Orion is radiation-hardened so the systems inside can withstand the harsh environment of space. Price is talking about the Van Allen Belt, a tightly packed field of radiation around the earth that acts as a layer that protects earth from charged ions. place with additional radiation shielding where the astronauts can shelter in place during solar particle ORION’S SPACE RADIATION PROTECTION Orion is designed for both short missions to nearby destinations and long-distance missions to Mars that will last more than three years. 0000001753 00000 n Helga and Zohar are currently in Cologne, Germany, where DLR teams are working on a prototype to safely attach them to the passenger seats of the Orion capsule, and preparing the radiation detectors for flight. It provides diverse perspectives and complementary resources,” says Razvan Gaza, project manager at Lockheed Martin, the company building NASA’s Orion vehicle.

Life support and radiation shielding systems on NASA's Orion spacecraft, built by Lockheed, make it qualified for deep space missions -- those beyond low-Earth orbit where the International Space Station is situated, said Shelby Hopkins, senior systems engineer for Lockheed's Orion program. The heavy metals will block gamma rays while ions and neutrons are captured by the hydrocarbons of the polyethylene. It is also a much cheaper approach to a shuttle. �B�r%�A�[��ߕ�[KS��H�F���i\�y�:� yAg.h�,hȯ?I��mM���(����-X��E�a�� �b��������6P���^#jJ��S��yK��� endstream endobj 198 0 obj <. ...
