Radiation 'Clouds' Detected at Aviation Altitudes

A report has discovered the discovery radiation 'clouds' at aviation altitudes.

When airplanes fly through these clouds, dose rates of cosmic radiation normally absorbed by air travelers can double or more.  The study references a flight taken over Antarctica in October 2015, when a sudden spike in the dose rate signaled the airplane's passage through a "radiation cloud."
