New research using data from NASA's Van Allen Probes mission and FIREBIRD II CubeSat has shown that plasma waves in space are likely responsible for accelerating high-energy particles into Earth's atmosphere.

There was no shortage of threats facing Apollo astronauts on missions to the Moon. Like radiation. Specifically, the dense radiation environment of the Van Allen belts that surround our planet. When it launched Apollo missions

The launch of NASA's twin Van Allen Radiation Belt Storm Probes atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas-V 401 rocket on August 30, 2012 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The probes, flying in nearly identical eccentric orbits, will serve to help scientists to understand the sun’s influence on Earth and near-Earth space by studying the Earth’s radiation belts on various scales of space and time.

Scientists Discover Star Trek-Like Invisible Shield Protects Earth from 'Killer Electrons'

'Somewhat like the shields created by force fields on Star Trek (pictured) that were used .

I saw a recent (2016) NASA video about Space X. The Physicist actually said, "We have yet to figure out how to get man through the Van Allen radiation belt..." WHAT? what about the MOON landing? OOPS!

Held in place by Earth's magnetic field, the Van Allen radiation belts swell and shrink in.

Earth is being protected by a Star Trek-like invisible shield

Held in place by Earth's magnetic field, the Van Allen radiation belts swell and shrink in response to incoming energy disturbances from the sun

Scientists have figured out that intense waves of ultra-low frequency plasma waves cause the third Van Allen radiation belt observed in 2013, paving the way for better protection of satellites from space weather.
