Cosmic Chicken Little

Scientists are reporting cosmic ray concentrations are now the highest observed in the past half century. That said, there is evidence of even higher concentrations in the past, and since we're all still here presumably we'll survive this too. Whether or not our satellites will is a bit of an open question. The finding also has implications for manned spacecraft design.

I know, I know, after most of a year out of office it's still Dick Cheney's fault. Hope and change!
