Warns of Radiation Dangers 'WASHINGTON (UPD-An almost certain death awaits the astronaut who flies for more than 24 hours in parts of the earth- circling Van Allen radiation belt. The warning about the lethal dangers of the wide ring of radiation came jfrnm its discoverer, Dr. James A. Van Allen, during a closed meeting of a House appropriations subcommittee. The testimony was made public today. The University of Iowa professor told the congressmen that radiation readings from highflying satellites indicated the part of lhe : belt stretching from 2,000 to about 40,000 miles above the earth was "uninhabitable." "Anyone flying in this innar region for as much as a day would very likely have a fatal dose of radiation in any present type spacecraft," he said^ Van Allen stressed, however, that the ring was not an absolute barrier to sending a team of space explorers to the moon. "I do not wish to leave the impression that the radiation bell constitutes a barrier in any absolute sense to extending our space flight capability and our space flight program," he- said Van Allen said men could travel to .the moon because they would spend "only a few hours in the intense radiation area and during that time trie cumulative dosage is not severe."
