Radiation shielding is essential to future missions of space exploration due to increased time of exposure to harmful radiation. One of the most damaging and dicult types of radiation to stop is High Atomic Number and Energy (HZE) particles in Galactic Cosmic Radiation (GCR). These particles are fully ionized and travel at near light speeds. The most dangerous of these are iron nuclei. Many shielding options have been proposed in both active and passive categories of shielding.
