In advance of the recent Eucas 2013 conference on Applied Superconductivity (Genova, Italy September 20130, the SR2S team developed a poster to outline the challenges facing the project and avenues of research for potential solutions.
The poster provides information on:
- the radiation challenges presented by Solar Particle Events and Galactic Cosmic Rays
- the potential promise in generating a static magnetic field using large superconducting magnets surrounding the spacecraft
- the use of a toroid shaped magnet and the interaction between the astroparticles and the materials used
- the maths and computations behind astroparticle motion, the magnet system and the type of conductor to be used.
