In the time it takes you to read this sentence, I will be able to tell you that I am currently in the process of completing a deep dive into an area of science and exploration that is as important to society as it is to me. I will describe what I hope and expect to discover to you in the coming days and weeks.
I was lucky enough to spend a few weeks recently researching a subject that I know a great deal about and hope to learn more about during my upcoming time with the project. In this case I’m looking at the effects of radiation on soil. We’ve known for a long time that the amount of radiation that we receive from the sun (a direct result of our sun’s radiation) has an effect on the soil we’re standing on.
The same can be said for the amount of radiation that our homes receive. My family has lived in a fairly well insulated home since the 1970s and I have been exposed to an awful lot of radiation over the years. We have come to rely on a lot of technology. If my family were living in a world without the internet, we wouldn’t be able to use that technology as much as we do.
Because we are so used to our technology, it can be a bit of a shock to move from a home that was built to be protected to a home that is now being exposed to a lot more radiation. One of the biggest concerns about being exposed to radiation is that it destroys all of your body’s natural defenses and makes you more susceptible to infections. That is why the best way to avoid getting radiation is to choose to live in a very well insulated home.
Radiation can be a real problem, but we’ve seen that the human body’s ability to repair itself is severely impacted by radiation exposure. As a result, people living near ground zero in the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan were suffering from severe radiation poisoning. That’s why the best way to avoid getting radiation is to choose to live in a very well insulated home.
Our home is pretty well insulated, so no wonder we avoid this problem. Thats also why we do everything we can to shield our walls and ceiling from radiation, especially in winter. We have a wall and ceiling that are made of plywood, fiberglass, and aluminum. These materials are very effective at reducing radiation. But this isnt radiation youre talking about, its a different thing called a “radiation spike”.
Radiation spikes cause cancer and other diseases, and our home isnt exactly a safe environment for us to live, but it has to be done. Our home is a combination of a lot of different types of materials that can absorb radiation. For example, this is where we live, and its hard to find a big enough home with the right amount of insulation for our needs. You might think that being very well insulated would prevent radiation spikes, but that doesnt happen.
radiation spikes happen in a few different places on our planet. Many of them happen on Earth, and as we know, some of them are dangerous. Here on the Moon, for example, we see radiation spikes from the Moon’s atmosphere at regular intervals. Radiation spikes happen in the same manner, but they happen when the Earth and the Moon are in different time periods. That means that when the Earth is in the same time as a radiation spike, it can also be dangerous.
I’m sure there are plenty of radiation spikes on the Moon, but it’s only in the past few years that we’ve really started to understand this aspect of the Moon’s atmosphere. If you ask anyone on Earth, they will say that their radiation spikes are so low that they have no effect on our lives, and that they are actually the most stable we’ve ever seen.
When we first saw the Curiosity rover exploring Mars last year, we thought that it was a piece of science fiction. We were wrong. It turned out that the rover is actually on one of the largest radiation spikes the planet has ever seen. And it has been that way for about 10 years. If you look at the map of the area it was in, you will find that the radiation spikes are much farther apart than we thought they were.
