Does protection from radiation fall under life support?
Yes, but I was going the wee need to eat and breathe route. In my project, I was able to counter radiation with shielding...even magnetic shields would work well.
Radiation is a very big consideration. We're some 40 years on from the Apollo program, but something that has come to light with the Apollo astronauts is an increased incidence of heart disease. And one of the major factors that researchers are pointing to is the cosmic radiation that the Apollo astronauts were exposed to since their flights to the moon took them beyond the Earth's magnetic field, which largely shields the planet from most of this radiation.
Cosmic radiation? So then these guys are just starting to develop their super powers? About time.
Right now the biggest problem getting to Mars is radiation. Second biggest is protection from random debris. Neither insurmountable, but both very difficult. A space elevator would solve both pretty quickly.
