Radiation Protection for Humans in Transit

If we want to transport humans we need to reduce the radiation exposure expected on the baseline slow (200kph)ascent.

  1. Start with Ander Jorgensen’s work and evaluate extent of issue
  2. Outline potential solutions
    • Speed
    • Active shielding
    • Passive shielding
  3. Work out a scenario using solutions to allow humans to transit on elevator
  4. Model the complete radiation exposure in a materials/radiation code or initially in a spreadsheet
