It’s nice to be reminded of this era. It’s staggering that it still takes 13 hours each way for communications, which is at the speed of light.

Reading a book recently, The Sun Kings, there is a balance between sun flares and cosmic radiation in how it effects Earth. When the Sun produces a lot of flares & magnetic storms in it’s 11 year cycle, cosmic radiation is reduced.

In 1972 there was a nasty surprise but luckily timing was ok for Apollo 17. If Astronauts were in space or on the moon at the time of the sun flares they would have received a fatal dose of radiation in 10 hours.
