to Protect Astronauts from Space Radiation 7-21-17:
I've read articles about airline pilots getting exposed to Cosmic Rays,
although most of the dangerous radiation coming from outer space is filtered
by the earth's magnetic field. However, when you go in outer space, you
have two types of radiation to contend with. One is the radiation
from CME's from our sun, the other is Cosmic Radiation coming in from outer
space. Scientist are working on a material that will block the radiation
that's called "Hydrogenated boron nitride nanotubes." This material contains
hydrogen which is the prime ingredient to block those pesky protons from
destroying your DNA.

To Nowhere: 7-18-17:
Thinking about going for a plane ride? Click on this link (http://skyhavennh.com/weather.html#metars)
and you'll know in 2 seconds if you're going anywhere. Looks like today
is a good day to read up on the latest GPS ADS-B information. You
might also brush up on Flight Following, ATC terminology and class B,C,
& D airspace. The new Garmin GTX 345 will tell you if you vary more
than plus or minus 250 feet from you selected altitude. ATC may not be
that generous. How about +/- 50 feet? That can be a challenge without autopilot.
By the time you finish switching pages on the GPS, checking the right zoom,
clearing the map clutter, setting the next radio frequency, checking ATIS...
oops, I just lost 150 feet and 10 degrees on heading... and don't forget
to keep looking out the window for traffic!
