Survival of Animals in Magnetic Fields of 140,000 Oe

  • Dietrich E. Beischer


Future developments in space travel may expose man for prolonged periods of time to magnetic fields considerably stronger than the geomagnetic field.1 Such exposure may have its source in magnets used in ion propulsion devices or in magnetic shielding against cosmic radiation.
