Goal of the investigation is to study and to analyze radiation dose distribution in cosmonaut's body during long-term mission aboard the International space station (ISS). The established patterns of dose distribution under different conditions of the experiment allow simplify evaluation of dose accumulation by spacecrew. Dose from ionizing space radiation was determined with the help of thermoluminescent dosimeters mounted in conditional depths of critical organs in human body modeled in a dosimetric device, i.e.–a ball-like tissue-equivalent phantom designed and manufactured in Russia for international space experiment Matreshka-R. The article reports experimental data disclosing the character and levels of exposure to ionizing radiation inside the Service module crew quarters during ISS missions 8 and 9 (425 days, 2004-2005) and the docking compartment (SO1) during ISS missions 15 and 16 (285 days, 2007-2008).
