Summary

Measurements of the radiation environment inside the Mir space station were performed with a Tissue Equivalent Proportional Counter (TEPC) during the Antares mission in 1992, and over a long period following it. Interesting results concerning radiation measurements show (a) the South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) crossing, (b) the increase of radiation near the poles, and (c) the effects of solar eruptions (the most important one occurring in early November 1992). These data also provide information about the dose and the quality factor of the radiation to which the cosmonauts were exposed during different missions. These data are compared with those obtained using a solid state detector.
