Acquisition of Data About the Radiological, Electromagnetic and Different Physical Environments on Board ISS, and Their Effects on the Safety of the Crew, Space Equipment and Materials (Brados)
Scientific Name: Homo sapiens Species: Human
The objective of this experiment was to develop methods in radiation dosimetry and radiobiology to improve techniques for measuring the radiation environment in low-Earth orbit and to for the assessment of biologically significant dosage loads on a human organism in space.

Thermoluminescence detectors (TLDs) were used to record the spectra of linear transmission of heavy charged particles and radiation damage of the genetic system. Solid-state nuclear track detectors (SSNTDs) were used to record integral absorbed doses of ionizing radiation.
Results from his experiment were placed in a database to study the impact of space ionizing radiation from these biodosimetry techniques. The reviewed data on absorbed dose and dose equivalent from primary and secondary cosmic-ray particles were obtained. Further information can be found in the publication cited below.
