Abstract

In the next decades, many world wide space agencies are planning to colonize new celestial bodies, such as the Moon, Mars and the asteroids. In order to undertake this type of missions different risks have to be taken into account, including space radiations, which are one of the biggest issue to consider. This work aimed to develop a quick and easy tool able to assess doses received by astronauts during these interplanetary journeys, with the particular feature to take data source directly from satellite recordings and online available dataset. After setting in advance the number, composition and thickness of each layer shielding the incoming ionizing particles, this tool evaluates the effective dose or the ambient dose equivalent released by those particles able to penetrate trough these layers, thanks to the Bethe‐Bloch's equation for the stopping power assessment. Finally, comparisons with results obtained from SPENVIS for both the case to the Moon and to Mars are presented and analyzed.
