As we all know space travel is a risky business. Life on this blue marble is a fragile one, we have all we need here to sustain life as we know it. As our atmosphere protects us here on ground level, it has a protector that takes care of it. The strong magnetic force that surrounds our planet keeps the radiation from our sun from stripping our atmosphere. This magnetic bubble around us has a limit to the distance it can protect us. If this magnetic field protects us here, can an artificial one protect us when traveling far from earth? Can we wire a space craft so it has a protective electromagnetic field outside keeping most if not all solar radiation out thus making radiation less of a worry in interstellar.ler travel? Thanks for your interest in this query.
