Magnetic energy is pretty strong. We’ve all see it overcome gravity. In fact, as New Scientist is quick to point out; it’s a magnetic force that shields the planet from solar destruction.
Since magnetic forces are something we understand, can manipulate and are powerful it seems like it’s not too crazy to speculate that the very first forms of non-physical spaceship shielding mankind might deploy will be magnetic in nature.
Not sure how that might work? Here’s a handy New Scientist video to put it into pictures.
So, what do you think? Is this crazy speculation born from the fevered mind of a sci-fi fan who thinks DS9 was the best of the Star Trek series runs? Or might you agree?
