Weâ€™re going to return to a long series of episodes we like to call: Radiation that Can Turn You Into a Superhero. This time weâ€™re going to look at cosmic rays, which everyone knows made the Fantastic Four. These high-energy particles are streaming from the Sun and even intergalactic space, and do a wonderful job of destroying our DNA, giving us radiation sickness, and maybe (hopefully!) turning us into superheroes.
