Radiation Martian colonists will protect the energy fields


It may seem incredible, but scientists at the British Science Laboratory Rutherford Appleton seriously thinking about the possibility of use in the upcoming missions to Mars energy shield that would protect future colonists from the harmful effects of radiation exposure, in the manner of futuristic energy deflectors of any ” Star Trek . ”

Scientists, however, such a system is called a “mini-magnetosphere”, and it works about the same principle on which the Earth’s magnetic field protects us from solar radiation. In our case with Mars, the system will form a magnetic field around the spacecraft. In other words, the astronauts will be in a kind of magnetic bubble that will reflect life-threatening rays, having secured the crew.

At the moment, about the difficulties of opposition deadly solar radiation in the planning of future missions to Mars is one of the most pivotal. As we have already mentioned , the new findings from the research Mars rover “Kyuriositi” show elevated levels of radiation that exceeds the standards for continued safe flight and further work astronauts.

But as to the first manned mission to Mars is still a lot of time, people from the Rutherford Appleton Lab confident that they can develop a setup that will avoid potential problems. Interestingly, in an interview with the TV channel CNN told the company that already has a working prototype of the system, the testing of which were held in a closed chamber of synthesis, where the expense of plasma scientists artificially created conditions similar to those that will experience and equipment, and the people on the flight Mars. And in the words of Ruth Bamford, head of the research project, a team of “highly dissatisfied with the conduct test.”

“The key to the success and implementation of our concept is a further evolution in the understanding of the properties of the plasma. In the study, we found that if you create around an object that is inside the plasma flow and the magnetic field, the electrons will follow the newly-formed magnetic field, and the ions are very fast ions are repelled from it. This would generate the electric field, which would be sufficient to reject or even reflections of radiation beams and actually protect the astronauts themselves, “- says Bamford.

The next step, according to the scientist should be open already tested in space and then bring to mind the prototype for the next five years.

Unfortunately, the issue of radiation is not the only challenge to the first manned flight to Mars. NASA has already admitted that its current resources will not suffice for the implementation of this truly grand plan, so the space agency looks forward to the active participation of the private companies which had taken the initiative and will be engaged in issues such as security of the future health of the crew. In turn, NASA will be here soon to act as a scientific consultant.
