Protection from radiation would have required heavy shielding, particularly from a gamma dose. That would mean a lot of weight and that is a serious consideration with an aircraft and a spacecraft.

I simply don't think the radiation levels were as high as the sceptics are claiming. I'm still waiting to hear them discuss the HAM radio communications, and the part about not finding water is easy- the mission parameters didn't call for finding water. We were doing good to land, plant a flag, bust out the car, pick up some rocks, take some pics & get the hell out of there.

Wiki has something on the Van Allen Belt radiation - but I don't understand it with just a quick look:

Too bad there isn't a "Queen Isabella" to sponsor the technology needed for today's explorers.:(

Hi, Chas! Nice to see you.

Hey, beautiful cat. Sith? Sith? Say it isn't so. Or, maybe just for Halloween. What's gonna happen when he figures out how to power up that light saber? And looks like he will...
