Abstract

In 1997, four dosimeter packages, each of which contains two CR-39 plates and 18 TLDs (Mg2SiO4:Tb), were placed inside the MIR Space Station and flew on an orbit with an inclination angle of 51.6° and an altitude of approximately 400 km for 40 days. We estimated the absorbed doses, dose equivalents and effective quality factors during the flight by combining CR-39 data and TLD data. We then compared these results to those obtained with the same analysis method from the dosimeter packages on board Space Shuttle missions STS-79, -84 and -91 that flew along the same orbit. Finally, the differences between our results and those obtained by another group using passive dosimeters on the MIR are discussed.
