NASA Voyager 1 Encounters New Region in Deep Space
Pasadena CA (JPL) Dec 04, 2012
NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft has entered a new region at the far reaches of our solar system that scientists feel is the final area the spacecraft has to cross before reaching interstellar space. Scientists refer to this new region as a magnetic highway for charged particles because our sun's magnetic field lines are connected to interstellar magnetic field lines. This connection allows lower-energy charged particles that originate from inside our heliosphere - or the bubble of charged partic ... read more
