Acceptability of Risk from Radiation: Application to Human Space Flight : Held May 29, 1996, Arlington, Virginia
National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements, 1997 - Medical - 197 pages
The symposium was convened in 1996 by NASA and the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) to examine the philosophy of radiation protection and acceptable risk as it pertains to the three percent excess risk guidelines established in 1989. The objective was to examine the technological, strategic, and philosophical issues pertaining to acceptable risk and radiation in space. Presentations included the space radiation environment, biology relevant to space radiation, history of the development of radiation protection standards for space activities, analytic concepts for assessing risk as applied to human space flight, approaches to acceptable risk, perception and acceptance of risk from radiation exposure in space flight, physician and astronaut perspectives on philosophy on astronaut protection, and comments on space flight and radiation limits.
