Magnetic Shields A Go!

It appears that our future space people (astronauts if you will) are going to be protected from Harmful “Space Radiation” by “magnetic Shields”.  Implementation of these shields is apparantly 15 to 20 years away due to the immense power requirements.

The shields will be fitted to the space craft and will function in the same way as the Earth’s own Magnetosphere (Who comes up with these? Stan Lee?) which deflects charged particles and other solar bits and bobs from the planet.

So does this mean the Fantastic Four will never come to be? Or will the shields spectacularly fail on the Richards’ space ship? Wait twenty odd years to find out kiddies!
