The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: mamoru: The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: The best strategy I heard was to line the inside of the pressure hull with the ship's water tanks since water tends to absorb radiation quite well.Water is heavy and rather dense (1 ton per cubic meter). That will significantly add to the mass of any ship, further increasing fuel requirements, further increasing the amount of mass you need to move. If water is your fuel, then you run into the problem of decreasing your shielding by using it.I'd guess a lighter solution would be much more preferable. Just out of curiosity, anyone know how thick a layer of water you would need to shield those on board from radiation hazards in space?What are the astronauts going to drink? Brawndo?
