NASA Space Cancer Risk Model: 2020 Operational Implementation
Astronauts are exposed to increased radiation from the space environment and from biomedical research studies conducted in the workplace. Federal requirements mandate that these exposures be limited to provide adequate radiation protection1. This report summarizes the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Space Cancer Risk (NSCR) model as implemented in 2020 for calculation of risk of exposure-induced death (REID) and risk of exposure-induced cancer (REIC) following occupational radiation exposures for astronauts.
