Abstract An investigation aimed at determining the effects of space radiation on superconducting materials and the possibility of simulating these effects with Co-60 gamma rays is briefly described. Data obtained indicate that the electron component of space radiation does not degrade the critical temperature of the YBCO films under consideration at least for energies around 800 keV. Exposure to Co-60 gamma rays in air for qualifying superconducting materials against the space radiation threat is considered to require some further investigation. 26 refs.
