NASA Space Radiation Laboratory

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

The NASA Space Radiation Laboratory (NSRL) at Brookhaven National Laboratory is a NASA funded facility, delivering heavy ion beams to a target area where scientists from all over the world study the effects of such beams on biological systems, with the goal of assessing the risk from space radiation to humans during long term missions to space and low earth orbit.
