When establishing the permissible levels of radiation during prolonged space flights one should consider not only the absolute risk attributed to radiation, but also the relative risk. The latter is determined by the ratio of frequencies of the consequences due to radiation to the analogous consequences due to other factors of the external medium. The solution of the problem of risk when estimating the danger of possible radiation effects under the conditions of a prolonged flight consists of finding an optimum relationship between the known radiation danger and the advantages of the mastery of space for man.
