I'm not a scientist but I'm fascinated with Mars. Recently I was thinking of the issue of terraforming Mars, that even if we dumped millions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere we would still have to deal with radiation and losing that atmosphere to space because it has a very weak magnetic field.
What I was thinking was if would be possible to have a bunch of satallites with strong magnets inside orbit the planet to simulate one? Would this actually work or is it too expensive? Or maybe I'm making assumptions about magnets that are wrong.
