“Raise shields Scotty!” – Real Plasma Deflector Sheilds

A recent article on BBC Science News stated that British scientists presented details at the Royal Astronomical Society’s National Astronomy Meeting in Preston, UK of a plan to see whether a Start Trek-style deflector sheild could be built to protect astronauts from radiation.

If you guys think Star Trek is for nerds and geeks, you might just be avoiding the inevitable. NASA already has a tricorder like device installed on their orbitting satellite around Mars.

Now I’m waiting for Warp drive (theoretically possible), transporters (E=mc^2, so it’s possible), Replicator technology (E=mc^2, so it’s possible), and my favorite technology that will put all current virtual simulations to shame : THE HOLODECK!
