Volume 18 Issue 2
Extraterrestrial Safety


From the Editor-in-Chief

Dear Readers,
The current issue focuses on Space Weather. Beyond Earth and International Space Station, space exploration will experience the less forgiving challenges and vulnerabilities of a harsh space environ lacking the protection and filter of a magnetosphere or a lunar atmosphere. While safety management will extend to radiation shielding composite materials for spacecraft fabrication, understanding the dynamic processes of space weather will inform lunar exploration and lunar infrastructure resource utilization. Hopefully, you will find this issue informative and worthwhile reading.
