A comprehensive survey of the literature relating to active spacecraft shielding is presented, including electrostatic and plasma as well as magnetic methods. A literature discussion is provided in order to give an overview of this field. The advent of high temperature superconductors may make magnetic shielding against charged particle radiation practical in spacecraft engineering.
