On 25–26 April 2011, JINR, in cooperation with a number of institutes, holds the Round Table "Topical Issues of Radiation Safety of Long-Term Space Flights" to mark the 50th anniversary of the first manned space flight.
For more than 50 years, JINR's accelerators have been used to model the biological effect of space radiations. JINR's first accelerator – the Synchrocyclotron – played an outstanding role in providing radiation safety of first manned space flights.
The meeting will focus on the following topics:
- Modeling the effect of heavy charged particles of space origin on biological objects (at the molecular, cellular, tissue, and organism levels).
- Radiation and radiobiological aspects of long-term manned space flights.
- Measures to provide radiation safety of long-term space flights.
