Re: Treknology - what's next?

After stumbling upon an article about long term missions in space I may well have to revise my original vote on 'what's next' to be invented.

Force fields/shields could well be along before long in a very basic form of radiation deflection for spacecraft. I'm not sure if there's anything about at the moment but 'electromagnetic shields' have been postulated as feasible in the near future.

Im not sure how closely these can be compared to the ones we see in trek but maybe the 1st stepping stone on the way to them.
