Abstract

One of the largest obstacles preventing humanity from entering the new era of celestial colonization is space radiation. We have researched and theorized potential solutions to overcome this astronomical obstacle. The use of Near Earth Objects, radiation-resistant materials, and human bioengineering methods are critical measures that must be utilized to safeguard those undertaking the journey through space. The ideas outlined in our paper will allow the development and implementation of protective measures against radiation in future space-related endeavors.
