General Information

The intention of these ‘Public Outreach Activity Days’ is the presentation of the ‘science background’, the ‘current state of research’ and the ‘further planned activities’ of the group to a scientific interested public audience. The place of the meetings is provided by the hosting co-investigators. The scientists will give talks about the baselines of radiation protection in space, the risks of long-duration space flight to humans, the scientific reason behind the MATROSHKA experiment, and the current status of the HAMLET project. The public outreach day will also include ‘hands-on experience’ for the general public to space radiation hardware, e.g. a training model of the MATROSHKA phantom.
