Ilford G.5 and K.2 emulsions in the astronauts personnel dosimeter packs furnished quantitative data on the various components of the astronauts radiation exposure on Apollo-Soyuz. Track and grain counts of the proton population in G.5 and proton ender counts in K.2 emulsion indicate a proton dose of 51 millirad and 74 millirem. Tissue disintegration stars including neutrons contribute an additional 4.6 millirad and 38 millirem. HZE particle tracks were evaluated using a reference scale of tracks with known Z and E values available in the literature.
