There are no natural terrestrial sources for the iron-60 isotope contained therein; it originates exclusively as a result of supernova explosions or through the reactions of cosmic radiation
with cosmic dust.
This distant area controls the amount of harmful cosmic radiation
entering the heliosphere, the magnetic bubble that shields our solar system from charged particles surrounding it.
With various space agencies such as NASA now planning on human missions to deep space, the study serves as a warning regarding the long term effects of cosmic radiation
In conjunction with the contract, ICT will partner with Dr Eric Benton and Dr Ranji Vaidyanathan from Oklahoma State University to model the materials' response to radiation and to test them before and after exposure to galactic cosmic radiation

Jennifer Ngo-Anh, ESA team leader, added: "This study allows us to address the issue of muscular atrophy caused by weightlessness but also other stressors such as cosmic radiation
, isolation and spatial restrictions."
ESA claim it is integral in understanding the damage that may be caused by weightlessness, cosmic radiation
, isolation and spatial restrictions.
Chang'e-4 is also equipped with instruments developed by scientists from Sweden, Germany and China to study the lunar environment, cosmic radiation
and the interaction between solar wind and the moon's surface.
