Cella’s unique high hydrogen content materials are the most effective shield against the high energy component of space radiation, both from galactic cosmic rays (GCR) and from the sun, or solar particle events (SPE). Above a certain amount of energy, all particles, electrons and protons as well as the high-Z can cause secondary radiation to such an extent that you can actually get an increase in dose behind a metal shield. These spallation reactions and any number of particle multiplication reactions are significantly reduced by Cella’s materials.
Hydrogen stops or slows the incoming radiation by moderation as well as ionization and there are several NASA reports showing that it is more effective for a given areal density than any other material. Cella’s unique materials store the hydrogen in a lightweight tractable form.
Cella’s technology can prolong the operational life of space satellites by several years, reduce your insurance premiums and keep astronauts alive on long endurance space missions.

XCOR is focused on the research, development and production of safe, reliable, reusable launch vehicles (RLVs), rocket engines and rocket propulsion systems. In just eleven years the firm has developed and built twelve different rocket engines and built and flown two manned rocket-powered aircraft. The EZ-Rocket, completed in 2001, was the first such vehicle built and flown by a non-government entity. In 2008 they completed flight testing of their second vehicle, the X-Racer, ending the test program with a record-setting seven flights in one day. Between the two vehicles, XCOR has safely flown a piloted rocket operations demonstrator aircraft 67 times. Those flights successfully proved that their reusable rocket engines are capable of intact abort, multiple flights per day and in-flight restarts. Their team has accumulated nearly 4,000 engine firings and 500 minutes of run time on our engines.
