Abstract

Reliable assessment of health risks to astronaut crews is pivotal in the design of future expeditions into interplanetary space and requires knowledge of absorbed radiation doses at the level of critical radiosensitive organs and tissues. Within the European MATROSHKA experiment, the dose profile in an anthropomorphic phantom body was investigated at intraand extravehicular activities on the International Space Station. The effective scientific exploitation of obtained dosimetric data is ensured within the 7th EU Framework Programme project HAMLET. Based on experimental data and radiation transport calculations, a threedimensional model for the distribution of radiation dose in an astronaut’s body shall be developed to further refine estimations of radiation risks on interplanetary long-term missions.
