(sorry - not sure about the prefix) I have read that lead shielding is dangerous against high energy particle radiation because of the high atomic number in lead. The particles would have high chance of hitting the lead atomic nuclei and producing x-rays. I am fed up with moon landing conspiracy theorists using the Van Allen belts radiation as "proof" we didnt go to the moon. Could someone please post some pages that are not Wikepedia (they say it is in on the conspiracy) that i can use for a citation? A paper done by some credible scientists would be excellent. Something explaining that lead is a bad thing to use with this type of radiation. I know you cant win with the conspiracy lot but i can win this Van Allen belt lie that they are spreading. Thankyou very much, your help is really appreciated.
