Space flights, where detectors of primary (galactic) as well as of solar cosmic rays were used, are as follows:
The studies of the Moon, however, included also that of the fluxes of galactic and solar cosmic rays, the radioactivity of the lunar surface, and fluxes of lunar albedo particles, that is, secondary particles emitted from the surface due to the interaction of galactic and solar cosmic rays with nuclei of the materials of the surface.
It became clear that from time to time the Sun generates strong fluxes of energetic particles; they received the name solar cosmic rays (SCR).

However, ejections can produce a form of solar cosmic rays that can be hazardous to spacecraft, astronauts and technology on Earth.
Usually, when one analyzes the propagation of solar cosmic rays in the interplanetary space the ideal Parker model of the solar wind (SW) is used.
