In addition to the natural sources of background radiation many artificial sources of radiation have been introduced since the discovery of Xrays and radioactivity at the end of the 19th century, and particularly since the exploitation of the process of nuclear fission in the middle of the 20th century. These artificial sources now add a significant contribution to the total radiation exposure of the population. 2 COSMIC RADIATION Cosmic radiation reaches the Earth from interstellar space and from the Sun.
