  • Understanding Tungsten Radiation Shielding

    Before we start discussing tungsten radiation shield, it is necessary to know what the radiation is and how does it affect our life. Radiation simply means emission of particular type of rays from an object. Radiation from different devices has different effect on human body. For example, you are not going to have any problem with ...


  • MHI and Obayashi Jointly Develop `Radiation-shielded Seat` To Suppress Radiation Exposure of Machinery Operators Working in Radiation-contaminated Areas

    Tokyo, Nov 14, 2012 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) and Obayashi Corporation have jointly developed a "radiation-shielded seat" that suppresses radiation exposures of industrial vehicle operators working in radiation-contaminated areas. The seat incorporates body armor-like radiation shielding developed by combining MHI's radiation shielding technology based on ...

  • Predicting the radiation risk to European Space Agency astronauts

    European scientists have developed the most accurate method yet for predicting the doses of radiation that astronauts will receive aboard the orbiting European laboratory module, Columbus, attached to the ISS this week.  The new software package accurately simulates the physics of radiation particles passing through spacecraft walls and human bodies. Such techniques will be essential to use for ...

  • Astronauts face radiation threat on long Mars trip

    Astronauts traveling to and from Mars would be bombarded with as much radiation as they'd get from a full-body CT scan about once a week for a year, researchers reported Thursday. That dose would, in some cases, exceed NASA's standards and is enough to raise an astronaut's cancer risk by 3 percent. As plans for deep space exploration ramp up, radiation is a big concern — from high-energy ...
