Superconductors and outer space

  1. What would happen to cosmic rays if you put superconductor material on the hull of a spacecraft? Would the flux trapping effect trap the cosmic rays? Could the superconductor protect the spacecraft from cosmic rays?

    Could it be possible to create a superconductor magnet that can produce a magnetic field strong enough to protect a spacecraft from cosmic rays?
