    • Ten rads per hour is several orders of magnitude more than a nuclear warhead would emit.
    • The radiation dosage was 5000 rads, similar to what has been used for other domestic species.
    • For example, ordinary first responders are instructed not to enter an affected area to save someone's life if they would accumulate a dose of 25 rads of radiation.
    • The dose equivalent in rems is numerically equal to the absorbed dose in rads multiplied by the quality factor, which, for most medical radiation, is one.
    • The LD50 dose for humans is ~ 400 rads, so we may infer that the environment of Amalthea is such that an unshielded human would receive a fatal amount of ionizing radiation in a matter of seconds.
