Quoting: Anonymous astropysicist 1946597 There are NO comic rays from the Sun
Those particles are called cosmic rays dumbass. LOL. I'll give you that radon and other radioactive elements do produce ionizing radiation but they only affect a small portion of any animal population and therefore aren't as big of a factor as cosmic rays which shower constantly on us and have a wide ranging flux depending on conditions in space. I'm referring to the past conditions not currently. Since the animals of the world didn't mine any radioactive materials the only way for them to be affected was if the elements ended up near the surface. There's cosmic rays from interstellar space and from the sun. Quoting: Plasmare
There's too many sources of radiation these days to know the real doses we get compared to the past.
. By definition , cosmic rays originate outside the solar system. Naturally concurring radioactive elements for many years accounted for the vast majority of radiation exposure in living things. Cosmic ray flux is VERY VERY low,
although it has an extremely high energy level.
Sigh. Why do you do this? You clearly know hardly anything about the subjects... Yes the sun produces cosmic rays, and there are also interstellar cosmic rays called galactic cosmic rays.Cosmic rays are a type of radiation that comes from space.
Cosmic rays aren't really "rays". They are particles (mostly protons) with very high energies. Cosmic rays come from various places, including the Sun, supernova explosions, and extremely distant sources such as radio galaxies and quasars. Because of their high energy, this type of particle radiation can be dangerous to people and to machines. On Earth we are mostly shielded from them by our planet's magnetic field and atmosphere.
Cosmic rays were discovered by the Austrian-American physicist Victor Hess. Hess discovered this new type of radiation in 1912. He won the 1936 Nobel Prize in Physics for this discovery. There are several different types of cosmic rays. Solar cosmic rays come from the Sun.
They have less energy than most other types of cosmic rays. Solar flares and other explosions on the Sun make this type of cosmic ray.
A second type is the galactic cosmic ray. Galactic cosmic rays have more energy than solar cosmic rays. Astronomers think they come from supernova explosions, black holes, and neutron stars within our own Milky Way galaxy. A third type is the rare extragalactic cosmic ray. Scientist think these particles come from somewhere outside of our galaxy. However, they aren't exactly sure where they come from.

Do cosmic rays come from our sun? From other (nearby) stars? After studying cosmic rays for the last century, scientists think that many of the lower and some of the medium energy cosmic rays come from stars. We certainly do receive cosmic rays on Earth that originate from our sun.However, these rays origins are difficult to study as they get deflected by the many magnetic field associated with other stars and planets.
Very, very low cosmic ray flux huh? Then what the fuck is this?Cosmic Rays Hit Space Age High
"We're experiencing the deepest solar minimum in nearly a century," says Dean Pesnell of the Goddard Space Flight Center, "so it is no surprise that cosmic rays are at record levels for the Space Age."
"In 2009, cosmic ray intensities have increased 19% beyond anything we've seen in the past 50 years," says Richard Mewaldt of Caltech. "The increase is significant,
and it could mean we need to re-think how much radiation shielding astronauts take with them on deep-space missions."

So either the information you're spreading is bullshit and wrong, which it clearly is, or NASA and other scientific institutions are wrong. And frankly there is no reason to trust you or your bullshit. Everything you say is just wrong, like you're purposely trying to misinform people and spread the wrong information. Are you getting paid for this?
