19 maultrommel rays have the most pronounced effects on living organisms. This part of the solar spectrum is referred to as biologically active. It accounts for about 5% of the solar radiation reaching the Earth's surface.
The length of the ultraviolet rays is in the range from 100 to 400 nm. There are 3 sub-bands: A (UVA) - 315-400 nm, B (UVB) - 280-315 nm, C (UVC) - 100-280 nm. Fortunately, the hard ultraviolet (all UVC and 90% UVB) is absorbed by ozone, oxygen, water vapor and carbon dioxide contained in the atmosphere.
That is, the Earth reaches the remaining 10% UVB and the entire UVA. Read more [...]
November 6, 2013. According to some, solar activity can affect the amount of cosmic radiation reaching the Earth, which will affect the formation of clouds, and thus on climate. However, Rasmus Benestad from the Norwegian meteorological Institute came to the conclusion that changes in solar activity do not explain global warming.
Mr. Benestad compared the average annual changes galactic radiation in 1951-2006, with annual variations of temperature, atmospheric pressure at sea level and precipitation on Earth. Information about cosmic rays were obtained through the tall Registrar neutrons located Read more [...]

on April 27. Cosmic rays, «obstrelivaya» The earth on all sides, contrary to the conventional theory are born not during gamma-ray bursts. This was stated by the US researchers working on neutrino detector IceCube, located deep in the ice at the station Amundsen-Scott near the South pole.
Cosmic rays, discovered a century ago, actually still remain a mystery. They may generate only a very powerful sources of energy - such as a gamma-ray burst or supermassive black holes found in the centers of some galaxies.
Now, however, a gamma-ray burst from the list of suspects should be deleted. Read more [...]

Scientists have discovered that the Earth is bombarded with high energy electrons from the located close to the solar system of the mysterious object, possibly made up of dark matter. This is stated in an article published in the journal Nature by a research team from China, Germany, the U.S., as well as from the Russian Research Institute of Nuclear Physics, Moscow State University.

If you fly in the Martian expedition to modern spacecraft, flight will take at least 500 days. Over this period, the space mission astronauts health may be lost forever. These are the results of research by Russian radiobiologists and physiologists, as discussed at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) on the meeting of the Division of Physiology and Fundamental Medicine, Russian Academy of Sciences.
The biggest danger scientists see in the galactic radiation: it can deprive a person of vision and understanding, without which neither the goal reach or return home will not work.
