Challenge : Radiation Shielding in Spacecraft Design

Challenge : Radiation Shielding in Spacecraft Design

NASA seeks radiation protection in manned space vehicles because of cost and up-mass considerations. Methods exist today for direct manipulation of design concepts to maximize performance using on-board materials, but these could be substantially improved through other means. Novel materials or novel optimization approaches beyond standard application of computer clusters to difficult problems are needed in order to realize the next generation of approaches to this radiation protection issue.
