Years ago I read some conspiracy sites about why NASA really didn't send men to the moon...most 'reasons' were 'iffy : shadows, not enough sand, a guy runs across with a light dressed in jeans etc. etc. etc.
But one thing I really did wonder about and that was the Van Allen radiation belt...but NASA sort of explained how in 1969 they did it without much shielding. Ummmm okay so it was just conspiracy, and I never gave it another thought...
until...... this week when Cern on their web site posted this:
"A team at CERN is working with the European Space Radiation Superconducting Shield (link is external) (SR2S) project to develop a superconducting magnet that could protect astronauts from cosmic radiation during deep-space missions. The idea is to create an active magnetic field to shield spacecraft from high-energy particles."
But I have to wonder why?....they didn't need it in 1969.
Does deep space have more radiation that the Van Allen belt? or should I crank up my conspiracy mind again?
But I have to say, I a really beginning to think the Cern scientists are truly mad as in crazy!! Even their movie Symmetry is very very odd...as in super strange.
Not to mention they have a statue of the 'god' of shiva (destruction) outside...yes I get they are smashing atoms, but even the name Cern could be for another 'god' Cernunnos 'god' of the underworld. And they are trying to break thu the 'wall' to the 4th or 5th dimension, which doesn't seem sane to me just saying. But that's off the track of developing a shield for astronauts
I never manage to post links correctly feel free to fix it for me, thank you
