The project SK-1/Dosimetry is a part of the project TEFÁNIK, the mission of Slovak astronaut Ivan BELLA to the orbital station MIR in February 1999.
The project is very close related to IEP-SAS traditional research of the nuclear component of the space radiation by passive nuclear emulsions. When exposed to the space radiation, the stack of solid-state polymer foils permanently records the traces of high-energy nuclei penetrating through the polymer material.
The emulsions are then processed and evaluated at laboratory condition.
Historically older expositions of IEP-SAS emulsions were provided by the recovery modules of the COSMOS-serie satellites, starting with INTERCOSMOS-6 (1972).
