About The Project:
For space agencies around the world, protecting the space travellers from deadly radiations is one of the greatest challenges of setting up a colony on the moon. Most of these radiations consist of charged particles. Inspired from the common application of the use of electric field to deflect a beam of electrons in a cathode ray tube, we want to experiment the possibility of use of an electrostatic field to deflect these radiation. This would enable us to build an electrostatic radiation shield around spacecrafts and lunar habitats to offer protection against radiation.
