Space Shield
Space environment is hazardous to spacecraft and astronauts due to the various forms of radiation and charged particles emitted from solar flares. These events pose health risks to people and cause damage to electronics and other features of the spacecraft. The events are irregular in magnitude and frequency and thus a dynamic system is required to...
