Simply said: the Van Allen belts are the shield of our planed. They're genereted by the magnetic field of Earth, not visible, but without them we don't exist. We have to thank 'em for auroras!

NASA engineer admits they can't get past the Van Allen Belts.....ok......so how did we do it for Apollo moon landing.......give me a break....because we didn't go

The antiprotons were discovered in a particular region of the Van Allen belt called the South Atlantic Anomaly, where the inner ring of the belt dips closest to Earth's surface

Earth's radiation belts, two doughnut-shaped regions of charged particles encircling our planet, were discovered more than 50 years ago, but their behavior is still not completely understood. Now, new observations from NASA's Van Allen Probes mission show that the fastest, most energetic electrons in the inner radiation belt are not present as much of the time as previously thought.
