    Impenetrable barrier to ultrarelativistic electrons in the Van Allen radiation belts

    A team led by the University of Colorado Boulder has discovered an invisible shield some 7,200 miles above Earth that blocks so-called “killer electrons,” which whip around the planet at near-light speed and have been known to threaten astronau

    An "Impenetrable Barrier" Protects The Earth From Killer Electrons

    It appears that our planet's built-in force field is much stronger than we thought. Scientists studying the Van Allen belts have discovered the presence of a nearly impenetrable barrier that prevents some of the fastest and most powerful "ultrarelativisti

    NASA’s Van Allen Probes Spot an Impenetrable Barrier in Space

    Two donuts of seething radiation that surround Earth, called the Van Allen radiation belts, have been found to contain a nearly impenetrable barrier that prevents the fastest, most energetic electrons from reaching Earth. This animated gif shows how partic

    Scientists Discover Star Trek Style Invisible "Shield" Thousands Of Miles Above Earth

    Space Photo credit: Andy Kale, University of Alberta. Some 7,200 miles above Earth, an invisible shield cloaking our planet is helping to protect us from damaging, super-fast “killer” electrons, scientists have found. This S

    Raise shields: Protective invisible barrier found surrounding Earth

    The idea of putting a Star Trek-like force field around the entire Earth seems like the fodder for a fairly silly science fiction epic out of the 1930s, but according to space scientists, such a barrier already exists. Discovered by a pair of NASA space pr

    How Space Shield Protects Earth from "Sledgehammer Blow" of "Killer Electrons"

    We live inside a bubble surrounded by a shooting gallery, but we've only realized for a few years how well-designed that bubble is. The Van Allen radiation belts were detected in 1958 by the Explorer rockets, America's first satellites to orbit th
