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 an area to be shielded from radiation. The cryogenically cooled radiation shield device also includes a first conduit extending about the area to be shielded from radiation. The at least one first coil is disposed within the first conduit. The cryogenically cooled radiation shield device also includes a second conduit extending about the area to be shielded from radiation. The first conduit is disposed within the second conduit. The cryogenically cooled radiation shield device also includes a first cryogen liquid disposed within the first conduit and a second cryogen liquid, different than the first cryogen liquid, disposed within the second conduit exterior of the first conduit.
