The findings are important for space agencies because astronauts are scheduled to land on the surface of the Moon as early as 2024.
Chinese experts were able to assess the danger posed by cosmic radiation to humans on the natural satellite in a study.
Evidence was gathered from the Chang’e-4 station. The study was published in the journal Science Advances.
According to the publication, the purpose of the work was to reveal how safe the satellite is for human health.
It is known that experts have measured the radiation exposure on the surface of the moon and found that it is about 200 times higher than what a person experiences while on Earth.
Note that the Chang’e 5 probe recently made a successful landing on the surface of the natural satellite of our planet. The purpose of its mission is to collect images and samples of the lunar soil.
By the way, the last time lunar soil was delivered to Earth was 44 years ago.
