Abstract : This monograph deals with radiobiological problems which must be solved before man can master outer space. It deals in particular with the immediate and remote effects of ionizing radiation on man. It consists of seven chapters, some of which contain several separate articles. These are by various authors who cite the results of their own experiments and also refer very extensively to other investigations, both Soviet and foreign. These articles are consolidated under the following main headings: Physical aspects of radiation safety of space flight; Biological foundations for radiation safety of space flights; Model radiobiological investigations of the action of high-energy protons; Biological action of protons on mammals and birds; Radiobiological effects of the action of protons on plants; Clinico-physiological observations of persons working on accelerators; Prophylaxis and therapy of proton injuries; Radiobiological materials as the basis for the local protection of astronauts.
