Mini Magnetosphere: An aid to Deep Space travel

A recent article in Telegraph said that the British scientists were successful in creating a Mini Magnetosphere in a 'laboratory' that can deflect solar radiation. The solution lays in the fact that, it mimics earth’s own defence (magnetic field) against harmful solar radiation. The implications of this work are far reaching, as it would some day aid humans in Deep Space travel (beyond moon).
