Which leads us neatly onto the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the UK, which has devised a “mini magnetosphere” that essentially recreates the protection provided by the Earth’s magnetic field. The scientists have so far used the magnetosphere to protect a scale spacecraft from radiation (pictured right, in a plasma stream), and they’re now working on a concept spacecraft, called Discovery, with a full-scale magnetosphere that could theoretically take humans to Mars.

This IMO would also be useful n relation to exploring and mining Asteroids.

As well as perhaps emergency shelters on both the Moon and Mars.

Any thoughts?

Shoot lets throw a big one on Mars since it's has stopped. Liquid water eventually anyone... or at least a step?

Ok..Is is just me, or should we not be naming the first manned vehicle to Mars: Enterprise?

The magnetosphere concept is pretty cool.

Consider a land vehicle like a Car or Train, protected with this kind of technology and used on the Moon or Mars?

What about a Domicile?

Yes t is and its potential goes well beyond space-craft.

I feel we should save naming a ship "Enterprise", until we develop the warp bubble.

I see the implication that separatism as expressed in nomenclature is overemphasized.

Great as an anti-EMP device. People who think machines could never rule the earth because of their flaws never considered the possibility of this technology.
