well that's that then.
really- they think these shields may protect against cosmic radiation and particle bombardment. if so it's a given that the lower energy solar
originated radiation and particles will not get through either. this is one of those stinky problems that prevents mankind from taking over the solar
system. a big one.
that just leaves, lofting large things into space from earth, impact protection, speed, power, advanced life-support and again, speed.
but still this is a biiiiig development if it works as predicted.
