Students Create Radiation Detector for Spacecraft | Florida Tech Ad Astra
For their student design project, Zachary Paul, astronomy and astrophysics, and Devon Madden, aerospace engineering, developed an in-flight detector tool to minimize the amount of shielding—and weight—needed to plug aircraft radiation intrusion. The detector can pinpoint radiation leakage into the plane when it reaches high altitude (15km) all the way to spaceflight altitude, so thatRead More
