Readings from the Chang'e-4 lunar rover reveals that the moon's radiation levels are at least 2-3 times higher than those which are found at the altitude of ISS. Scientists say that this will help in mitigating the process of human exploration of the moon in future. The radiation levels on the moon are reported to be 200-1000 times greater than here on earth. Scientists conclude with this new data that it might be possible for humans to stay about 2 months continuously on the moon with special protective clothing.
