Yeah, I think I put that one to bed. It's an odd story, and I don't believe the ISS is what they say at all, but that story is not a smoking gun, nor is it against what we know of physics. I'm not saying it's true, but it is possible.
AS for the VB belts, I am really curious about the film from the cameras and this radiation. One of these links said that high energy protons were the main danger. That doesn't sound right to me, and I don't know how those relate to film.
I do know that Kodak discovered a large radiation release in the Midwest in the 60s or 70s. They kept having film issues, and they used to pack the film in corn stockings and leaves. They found out the gov had released a huge amount of radiation near Indiana to test the effects on the population, where their corn parts where coming from.
It became a whole big thing. Some truth actually came out, but nobody paid any attention, and Kodak got it's corn leaves from somewhere else for a while.
