NASA Space Station On-Orbit Status 18 January 2005

“The ISS experienced a high solar particle event yesterday. MCC-H notified the crew of the higher radiation levels and reminded them to take shelter if the TEPC (tissue equivalent proportional counter) radiation-measuring instrument alarm sounded. Today the crew was informed that by the time the EVA occurs, the high-activity area on the Sun will rotate out of view and should not affect the spacewalk on 1/26.”

“The geomagnetic field is expected to remain at active to severe storm levels for the next 24 to 48 hours. The arrival of the CME associated with the X3 flare on 17 January has not yet been observed but is expected to contribute to geomagnetic activity over the next 12 to 24 hours.”
