Since January 2004, the International Space Station (ISS) is hosting a permanent guest – a human phantom which is the key part of the ESA MATROSHKA Facility. The phantom is equipped with thousands of radiation sensors helping the scientists to understand more precisely the dose and particle distribution in a human body for an improved radiation risk assessment. Having already completed three exposure measurement campaigns using the Russian Service Module, MATROSHKA just finished its fourth campaign in the Japanese KIBO Module. Now, it is back in the Russian segment after having twice passed the ISS “borders” from Russia to Japan.
