Abstract

Mr. Furukawa, JAXA's astronaut, went to the ISS (International Space Station) on June 8 and remains there now. It is well known that satellites and astronauts are always endangered in space due to plasma, radiation particles, neutral particles, ultraviolet rays/X rays and meteoroids/debris. Since we have to support JAXA's projects to keep them safe from the space environment, our group has been researching the radiation environment of space for more than 20 years. Currently, we are obtaining data from five satellites and the ISS and supporting Mr. Furukawa's project on a daily basis. In this paper, we explain our own research system into the radiation environment.
