    The naturally occurring, or indigenous, space radiation which would be encountered by a space vehicle has its origin in the stellar bodies of our galaxy. This radiation consists of both electromagnetic radiation and charged particle radiation, each of which interacts uniquely with the galactic environment. The cosmic radiation from our sun is treated separately. Since all other stars are orders of magnitude further away, certain phenomena of importance to the earth's environment are purely solar in origin.
