Radiological protection and medical dosimetry for the Skylab crewmenDosimetry results for Skylab crewmembers show that the Skylab 4 crewmen received the highest dose equivalents but remained well within the established limits for Skylab missions below the threshold of significant clinical effects. These dose equivalents apply specificially to long term effects such as general life shortening, increased neoplasm incidence, and cataract production. A Skylab crewman could fly a mission comparable to one 84-day Skylab 4 mission per year for 50 years before exceeding these career limits.
