Detectors for Measuring Space Radiation — •Robert F. Wimmer-Schweingruber and and the Kiel Extraterrrestrial Physics Team — Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, Kiel, Germany

Radiation in the solar system comes from various sources, primarily galactic cosmic radiation (GCR) and solar (cosmic) radiation, as well as particles trapped and/or accelerated in and at planetary magnetospheres and traveling shock waves. While measurements of radiation on Earth and in its atmosphere have been performed for more than a century, measuring space radiation is more complicated, mainly because of the limited resources available on spacecraft. In this talk I will discuss examples of how to measure space radiation on Mars, the Moon, and in the inner solar system, i.e., between the Sun and Earth, thus covering measurements on a body with a (thin) atmosphere, with no atmosphere, and in free space. The examples include the Radiation Assessment Detector (RAD) on NASA*s Mars Science Laboratory (MSL), the Lunar Lander Neutrons and Dosimetry (LND) instrument on China*s Chang*E 4 lander on the far side of the Moon, and the four sensors STEP, EPT, SIS, and HET on ESA*s Solar Orbiter which is scheduled for launch on February 7, 2020, at the time of writing this abstract.
