Abstract: The numerical simulation code MCNPX was used to calculate the production and transport of cosmic-ray-produced neutrons in Mars and meteorites. These calculations help to understand the processes involved and the parameters that control the neutron fluxes. Results are presented here for neutrons in Mars and for the distribution of cosmic-ray neutrons and protons in a 50 cm-radius L-chondrite.
