More progress for Mars outpost...one tiny step

NASA officials say the Mars rover has discovered that radiation levels on the planet are low enough to not be fatal to humans. The website spacereporter.com notes that the rover made its findings by linking radiation levels to daily changes in Mars weather. Don Hassler, the radiation investigator on the Curiosity team, predicts: “Absolutely, astronauts can live in this environment.” But a big issue remains: Will space travelers be killed by radiation from solar flares as they travel toward Mars?
