Mod Idea For Electromagnetic Heat Shield

Recommended Posts

I heard of this one cool concept to protect spacecraft from aerodynamic shock heating with an electromagnetic shield.  I would love to see a mod of this, how it would work is a part would project a bubble around the ship, and use electric charge to power it, the diameter of the bubble could also be variable, the larger it is the more power it consumes, when there is no more power left the shield goes away and parts are no longer protected. This could be done through the use of separate parts  or as an option that can be changed both in editor and in flight.  The bubble should have a near infinite thermal tolerance but i think it would be more realistic if the power usage was proportional to both the size of the bubble and the heat acting on it. Also the bubble should have drag that depends on the diameter.   here is an example of how it would look. https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg22329763-100-magnetic-bubble-may-give-space-probes-a-soft-landing/mg22329763.100-1_800.jpg

Yes, we need this so we can make the spaceship from passengers.
