Question: what thickness of space-craft aluminum would be needed to
protect occupants on a round trip to the Moon?
Show your calculations, especially for the crossings of the Van Allen
radiation belt.

In article <j1ree...@news6.newsguy.com>, n...@spam.com says...

Protect the occupants from what? From your mention of "Van Allen
radiation belt" one assumes that you mean from radiation. If so the
answer is "none, unless you're stupid enough to fly the thing through
the Van Allen radiation belt".
