Space Radiation Superconductive Shield

Ziel

Long duration permanence in deep space or on the surface of planet not protected by a thick atmosphere and/or magnetosphere represent a challenge which remains, as today, unsolved. Long time exposure to Galactic Cosmic Rays (GCR) and Solar Energetic Particles (SEP) is thought to cause a significant increase in the probability of various type of cancers. Means to adequately shield the astronauts from the ionizing radiation are required in order to realistically plan for exploration missions to Mars, Near Earth Asteroids or for setting on the Moon surface. This study will explore the feasibility of a superconducting magnetic shield, comparing the various possible magnetic configurations and analyzing its merits as well the challenges of this
approach. It also include the development of some key abilitating technologies to be used to build such a spacecraft shield.
