Will Van Allen's belt become the Firmament?

Interesting little article published by NASA in 2017 suggests that our very low frequency radio communications interact with the Van Allen's belt particles creating a "man-made barrier".

I have this unsubstantiated opinion that at some point this "interaction" will become the reason for not being able to go to the Moon, or wherever. Whether it evolves into the Biblical Firmament, remains to be seen. I think there is a reason for such a "discovery". There has to be. At some point we might find out what that reason is.
Humans have long been shaping Earth’s landscape, but now scientists know we can shape our near-space environment as well. A certain type of communications — very low frequency, or VLF, radio communications — have been found to interact with particles in space, affecting how and where they move. At times, these interactions can create a barrier around Earth against natural high energy particle radiation in space. These results, part of a comprehensive paper on human-induced space weather, were recently published in Space Science Reviews.
