well, physics does tell that van allen radiation belts are not themselves a radiator of cosmic rays but the belts have been formed by the earth's
powerful magnetic field which traps most or all the solar deadly ionized radiation from striking the earth's atmos. that's point one.
point two: why does nasa repeatedly stress that the radiation levels outside the van allen belts are unpredictable than within the belts themselves?
and why are they undertaking a study and launch a unmanned rad-det probe sometime in 2010 or 11 to measure radiation levels at the vicinity and on the
surface of the moon? haven't we been there already? didn't apollo15-17 crew perform a whole day of activity? do we get x-rays tests done on our
teeth or chest or any other body portion for a whole day? if geo-synchronus satellites (for our communication, weather or tv) are covered and
protected with thick lead sheets to prevent their electronics from being annihilated by the solar radiation, then how come the astronauts survived
their moon walk with only 25 layers of nothing more than bullet-proof suits? remember, kevlar is, REPEAT IS, solidly BULLET-PROOF, but hold it against
even a portable x-ray machine, and it becomes useless!
the x-ray technicians who take snaps of your body wear protective lead covered flexible nylon layered cloths. i guess, even if nasa had been mindful
of this fact, they would have succeeded in convincing the hoax believers! and i'm not one of them. but i don't believe nasa either, for the simple
reason that they give Never A Straight Answer!
