There are various methods to shield spacecraft from energetic particles, like one based on the usage of the permanent magnets. At the same time this method is not perfect; it only suggests low intensity magnetic field because of neglecting galactic cosmic radiation effects on human body. In this paper, hyper thin rings as a shield for spacecraft are suggested. Although these rings are lighter than permanent magnets, their ability to protect spaceship with a safe and high intensity magnetic field is higher than the magnets.
