From Chernobyl To Mars: The Future Of Radiation Protection

In the minutes after block 4 of the nuclear power plant in Chernobyl exploded, no one knew that they are experiencing a disaster that never happened anywhere before on planet Earth. The public health, environmental, and even the socio-political consequences were disastrous and we can still experience the negative impacts.

In this respect, after our investigations, it even turned out that it would be beneficial to get to Mars as soon as possible. Are you asking why? We can only tell you to read on.

Moreover, the Chernobyl disaster still lingers over our head as we make decisions about public health issues and nuclear energy use – and on the brink of climate catastrophe, these questions are more topical now than ever.

CONCLUSION: To address flaws in conceptualisation and the resulting gaps in knowledge, we suggest a definition and a theoretical framework that are suited to allow heterogeneity in the field, but enables the development of sound interventions, as well as facilitate the interpretation of intervention effectiveness.
