There are a few other ways, mostly of the form putting (human proxy) in

As far as radiation exposure is concerned it's pretty clear there is a

On the surface of the Earth you get

Is that 100 mSv over a certain duration?  Otherwise, at 2.4 per year, you'd
reach your lifetime cap in about 42 years - and many, many people live to
