This exciting episode covers the threat of cosmic radiation within our solar system vs. within our greater galaxy (once we have left the bounds of our cozy little star system.) We discuss high energy particle damage and the deleterious effects it can inflict upon our DNA strands. In addition, neutron stars, pulsars and the dangerous particles created by supernovas will be covered, followed by how to shield our bodies (during space travel) from ultra high energy protons!
