do you think it is possible to build a atmoshere living envyroment

atmoshere held in place by a magnetic field
so solar winds and such wouldn't blow them away
then you wouldn't neccisarily need ground
you could float
and the pressure of the artificial atmoshere would be enough
to keep our delicate bodies intact
it may also keep some bone density

An atmosphere could not be held in place by a magnetic field dude, some sort of artificial gravity is nesesarry to keep humans healthy so a weightless environmnt wouldn't be possible for the long term.

I think living inside a toroidal body, the inner surface, would be the most practical. spin the torus for artificial gravity, make a thick layer of soil in side the torus, fill it with air and light it and you have a artificial world. They could be quite large, possibly miles across and be made of materials obtained in space. Such colonies could be used as orbiting colonies and as slow ships to travel to the stars.

the main issue with living in space is boiling right
on earth you have the pressure of a vw beetle
on every point on your body
gravity makes you body make your bones strong
thats why in space you lose bone density
i also have a theory that accupressure could artificially
induce bone growth

now since we can move hydrogen with magnetic fields
why can't we use it as a force shield

(in the future)

have a membrane consisting of magnetic field inducers
which constantly spin hydrogen (being the shell)
then pressurize the "membrane"
giving the "vw beetle" amount of pressure to the whole space envyroment

Ah no, I would think suffocation would come first.

Ah no, we have 15lbs per square inch on our bodies, a VW beetle weighs in the neighborhood of 2000 lbs.

gravity makes you body make your bones strong
thats why in space you lose bone density


Basically this is true

i also have a theory that accupressure could artificially
induce bone growth


The mechanism of this would be?

No we can not move neutral hydrogen atoms with a magnetic Field. We can use it to repel charged particles.

(in the future)

have a membrane consisting of magnetic field inducers

I will give you points for excellent technobabble. Emphasis on the babble part.
