Sedating a dog when traveling
One usually only encounters gamma rays and x-rays from The ionizing radiation in space is comprised of charged particles, uncharged particles, and high-energy electromagnetic radiation.The particles vary in size from electrons (beta rays) through protons (hydrogen nuclei) and helium atoms (alpha particles) to the heavier nuclei encountered in cosmic rays, e.g., HZE particles (High Z and Energy, where Z is the charge).Science geeks call rays "Electromagnetic Radiation" (a fancy word for exotic light), but you just have to know that the deadly ones are X-Rays and Gamma Rays.
We’ll even write your actual tagline for you should the proper inspiration hit. So if you want help with your tagline, get started by telling us in the comments!
Particle radiation is protons ("proton storm"), neutrons ("neutron radiation"), electrons ("beta particles"), alpha particles ("alpha particles") and heavy primary nuclei ("HZE ions").
Combat them with a radiation shield made out of low density stuff: water, liquid hydrogen, lithium hydride, paraffin, hydrogenated polyethylene composite, or something else stuffed with hydrogen.
The characteristic blue glow you've seen in photographs of "swimming pool" reactors is called Cherenkov Radiation.
If you the blue Cherenkov glow around an object IN THE AIR .
