Submission + - Deflector shields On!

Tmack writes: The BBC has posted an article about their research into deflector shield technology:

British scientists are planning to see whether a Star Trek-style deflector shield could be built to protect astronauts from radiation. They argue that magnetic shields could be deployed around spacecraft and on the surfaces of planets to deflect harmful energised particles.

Complete with an awesome graphic representation of their idea.
