    Interesting article. Is the moon inside of this sheath or outside of this sheath?

    The Moon is very far outside since the radius to the magnetosphere is only ~10 times that of Earth itself.

    Thank you nFA. I supposed that was the case but I was not sure. So it brings up another question about how we would protect any kind of station of even semi permanent human occupation on the Moon over long time durations. If my question is not germane to this thread please forgive me I do not mean to hijack anything. :-)

    No worry.

    You'd have to shield it with matter. Burying the station sufficiently deeply would work. The main obstacle to a Martian expedition is the radiation hazard.
