NEUDOSE [McMaster University]
NEUDOSE (Neutrons, Dosimetry, Exploration) is a Canadian 2U-CubeSat designed by the McMaster University to measure the potentially dangerous ionizing radiation astronauts are exposed to during spacewalks, and help scientists better understand its effects on the human body.
NEUDOSE is the first device that to measure the amount of neutron and charged particle radiation an astronaut receives during a spacewalk.
The satellite was launched onboard of Dragon CRS-27 towards the ISS, from where it will be deployed.
