Abstract

See full text

A cryogenically cooled radiation shield device and method are provided to shield an area, such as the capsule of a space vehicle, from radiation. A cryogenically cooled radiation shield device may include at least one first coil comprised of a superconducting material extending about the area to be shielded. The cryogenically cooled radiation shield device also includes a first inner conduit extending about the area to be shielded from radiation. The at least one first coil is disposed within the first inner conduit. The cryogenically cooled radiation shield device also includes a first outer conduit extending about the area to be shielded from radiation. The first inner conduit is disposed within the first outer conduit. The cryogenically cooled radiation shield device also includes a first cryogen liquid disposed within the first inner conduit and a second cryogen liquid, different than the first cryogen liquid, disposed within the first outer conduit.
