Moon To Mars
An artificial magnetosphere could be generated around manned space craft
en route to the Moon or Mars to protect the occupants from the
potentially lethal radiation in space from the Sun. A superconducting
ring on board such a space craft could produce a magnetic field, or
mini-magnetosphere, similar to the Earth's, which would create a Star
Trek like 'deflector or plasma shield'.
