It's all about the Van Allen Radiation belt. Nothing new.

Didn't Dr Van Allen say there was nothing wrong with his belt , something to do with the " Rainbow " test series that Hawaii " enjoyed " ;-) , another " famous / infamous " f up by the US Military but NOT half as good as " castle Bravo hahahahaha ;-) ;-)

In a new study, researchers used NASA’s Van Allen Probes to look at the impact of man-made “space weather”.

That’s when they spotted the VLF bubble, with the signals travelling beyond the planet’s atmosphere and into space.

If you have something positive to contribute, say it otherwise say nothing.

Quoting your own words: - I repeat things as there are many new members & they "may" not know about it.

There are many who do know about things but with the various issues that take up one's time in life, keeping up to date is not always possible, so when threads like this crop up, it is one way to keep up to date & secondly many may find it interesting.

I find it truly amazing that one who is involved in a space related science project is so negative about both space & science, so amazing, it makes one wonder why they're here!

There are in fact two Van Allen radiation belts the inner at 1,000-6,000 km high, and the outer at 13,000- 60,000 km high. In 2013, NASA reported that the Van Allen Probes had discovered a transient, third radiation belt, which was observed for four weeks until it was destroyed by a powerful, interplanetary shock wave from the Sun.

Third belt

I think you mean the Starfish Prime test which was one of five high-altitude tests grouped together as Operation Fishbowl.

Yea that's the one " wotever ;-) " can't be 100% perfect 100% of the time like so many posters are now can i ;-)

still the " St's" f-up fairly well didn't they let alone the booms as their missiles exploded on the pads and contaminated sh#tloads of land to ;-)

Assuming this man made bubble surrounding the earth has been verified and that it deflects cosmic rays and other harmful radiation, I wonder if the technology can be modified to generate a bubble around a manned spacecraft. Or would it require cosmic power levels to be effective, also requiring the spacecraft to be impossibly large.

Well, NASA seems to think so at times.

[i]A certain type of communications — very low frequency, or VLF, radio communications — have been found to interact with particles in space, affecting how and where they move. At times, these interactions can create a barrier around Earth against natural high energy particle radiation in space.

Something akin to the Startrek shields around Enterprise? This was 24th Century sci fi technology, but until we invent the warp drive for FLT travel, I doubt shields will be needed. Interesting thought though!

What about when there's Crewed mission to Mars , that is sposed to be happening fairly soon ain't it ?? ( pending on money / politics stuff etc ) . Would of 4t if they can develop " shielding tech " it would save a lot of weight in the space craft and weight is what they don't want int it ? More weight = more fuel etc .
Might not be faster than light but deflecting a micro meteorite would save lives / craft .
They have to move the ISS to stop it getting " holed " by objects / debris and space junk
Think if anything puts a hole into anything in space it's " sh#t your spacesuit " time for the Astronaughts / Cosmonaughts etc till they have repaired the damage caused

NASA plans a mission in the 2030's, and currently numerous Chinese, European and American agencies are developing proposals for human missions to Mars. None have yet moved past the planning stages. I would judge we are talking 20 years yet minimum, and even then it is not clear whether that will be a single or return trip. I won't see it in my lifetime, you may see it in yours. I was hoping to see Moonbase 1, but even that looks remote now.

Many think cosmic radiation will prove to be a real problem for deep space travel.

Yes Thats very true.
If I remember right and the Apollo projects sending mans to our Moon there was a major sunburst.
Luckily it was between the missions.

And that's not even deep space travel...
