In this activity students read about the effects of radiation on airline passengers, and discover that during a trip in a jet plane at altitudes of 30,000 feet, cosmic rays and other energetic particles pose a great problem and can lead to significant health risks, especially for airline pilots. Students then apply mathematical concepts to calculate dosages and write a letter to persuade the Federal Aviation Administration or the Department of Transportation why it is important to educate, predict, and notify the public about the harmful effects of solar radiation.
