I was flicking through my science textbook in school one day when I came across the page on Electro-Magnets. It seems some metal wire, wound around an object in a coil, produces a magnetic field like Earths so it got me thinking: If we wrap a coil around a space craft and put a current through it, we've no problems with radiation.

This can be done, but you'll need a very strong electromagnet.

Or... increase the amount of coils; encase the outer layer (before the coil laver) in steel.

On a grand enough scale, Mars could be shielded and given a chance at keeping an atmosphere. How big would it have to be?
I always wondered what happened to Mars. Water canals don't form instantly so there had to have been a thicker atmosphere once. So what happened?

Are you sure the 'canals' aren't the result of Marsquakes?

Until i'm walking around on Mars, i won't know for sure. I would feel a lot more comfortable knowing that it was once a living planet.

Do you believe Mars was stillborn or just never had a real atmosphere?

There are two theories that I have read about.

It once had a thither Atmosphere, but because it only has 38% of the Earth gravity, it lost Atmosphere and water froze or boiled away and was lost over time.

Mars, use to be a Moon of a larger Planet that kept Mars habitable or at least more habitable than what it is now. After the separation, Mars lost it Atmosphere and most of it free water.

I am sure there are other opinion out there too.

More like Mars had a Moon that was torn apart by the gravity of Jupiter and formed the asteroid belt. If Mars used to be a Moon the Mother Planet has to be around somewhere. Unless it's called either Earth or Venus....

Can one planet interfere with another planet's magnetosphere? Like running a magnet across a cassette? Would the giant impact hypothesis about the moon not being terrestrial help this theory? The moon coming way too close to a Mars with an atmosphere and scrambling everything up before slamming into a young Earth.

The asteroid belt could be what left of that planet that Mars was orbiting too. If that orbit was elongated like the orbit of Mars is elongated, then much of those asteroid over tens of million or more that that planet exploded could have be flung sun ward, toward Jupiter or even flung completely out of the solar system. If it had any soils, it would be left drifting in space. So we would be talking maybe tens of million of years for that mass to have dissipated to current mass that we see in the asteroid belt. If that planet were a gas giant, there may not be much of it left at all, since most of it was a gas to begin with.

Unless Mars was a Moon of Jupiter and got flung into a smaller orbit.

Anyway, my Artificial Magnetosphere works. Some scientists did it.

Gotta do what you gotta do If they had to deliver the beer like that Spitfire Ale I'm sure it's called, can you imagine how desperately it was needed? If they didn't get it, we could've lost the war
