What Are The Answers To These Cosmic Ray Questions?

Postby Smith » Fri Oct 06, 2017 9:35 pm

Research either Solar Winds/Storms or UV Radiation, which are types of cosmic rays, and answer the questions that follow.

What are the effects of your cosmic ray on Earth, and/or technology, and/or biota? Explain fully the effects (e.g., explain using diagrams how UV radiation cause melanomas).

How are the hazards of your cosmic rays predicted? Are there any early warnings of incoming risks (levels of UV, or Solar wind particles)?

Describe in detail Earths natural protection against the cosmic ray (diagrams may be useful instruments).

What Are The Answers To These Cosmic Ray Questions?

This article has the details. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmic_ray

Cosmic rays are mainly protons and electrons from sources OTHER than our sun.

"Cosmic rays constitute a fraction of the annual radiation exposure of human beings on the Earth, averaging 0.39 mSv out of a total of 3 mSv per year (13% of total background) for the Earth's population. However, the background radiation from cosmic rays increases with altitude, from 0.3 mSv per year for sea-level areas to 1.0 mSv per year for higher-altitude cities, raising cosmic radiation exposure to a quarter of total background radiation exposure for populations of said cities. Airline crews flying long distance high-altitude routes can be exposed to 2.2 mSv of extra radiation each year due to cosmic rays, nearly doubling their total ionizing radiation exposure."

As for effects on biota.

That is a separate issue .

This article deals with it partially : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Environment...

The earth's magnetic field deflects some cosmic rays.

Rays that strike the atmosphere mostly are absorbed or have their energy reduced by collisions with air molecules.

nevertheless i'm no historian or astronomer, it is an exercising in severe questioning. at the start, lookup hearsay interior the legal dictionary. flow on, look it up. speedy question. have you ever been to the moon or interior the Hollywood studio the place the moon touchdown might have been filmed? If the respond is 'no', then you definately won't be able to verify one way or the different. in case you weren't there on the MOON to witness the touchdown, you won't be able to testify in a courtroom of regulation if it got here about or no longer. something is available. back, lookup the meaning of hearsay. think of roughly it!
