Cosmic rays in space are much more abundand than on the ground due to the lack of shielding by the Earth's atmosphere. This results in a higher dose receive by astronauts and in other effects, such as the Light Flash Phenomenon. Long and short term radiation monitoring and the study of these effects is a fundamental issue toward the establishment of a permanent human presence in space and a future mission to Mars.
