NASA is working on new spacecraft for lunar travel that will serve as the building blocks for trips to Mars and other destinations in our solar system. These planned interplanetary trips will present potentially significant health hazards to the astronauts from solar particle events. This artist’s rendering represents a concept of the Orion crew exploration vehicle docked to a lunar lander in lunar orbit. See article by Shaowen Hu et al. on page 465 for more information.
