Forcefields with Magnets? Yup the future is almost here
Superconductor magnet spacecraft heat shield being developedNovember 26, 2009 by Lin Edwards
(PhysOrg.com) -- European space agencies and an aerospace giant are developing a new re-entry heat shield that will use superconductor magnets to generate a magnetic field strong enough to deflect the superhot plasma formed during re-entry of returning spacecraft. They plan to test the new technology by attaching a test module to a missile and using a Russian submarine to fire it into space. Click Here to read more...
