Voyager 1 did just that, in 2012, while Voyager 2 has yet to leave the heliopause.
The test results will provide modeling data for the Heliopause Electrostatic Rapid Transit System (HERTS).
These materials interact at the heliosphere's edge to create a region known as the inner heliosheath, bounded on the inside by the termination shock -- which is more than twice as far from us as the orbit of Pluto -- and on the outside by the heliopause, the boundary between the solar wind and the comparatively dense interstellar medium.
Some scientists posited that this deviation was an indication of Voyager 1 still being embedded in the solar wind inside the heliopause.
Scientists expected that the direction of the magnetic field in space would reverse at the barrier known as the heliopause.
Earlier this year, a surge in a key indicator fueled hopes that the craft was nearing the so-called heliopause, which marks the boundary between our solar system and outer space.
The Sun's hot corona continuously expands in space creating the solar wind, a stream of charged particles that extend to the heliopause at roughly 100 astronomical units.
It travels outward, as the solar wind after its ecstatic burst travels outward past the planets and through the cloud of comets, carrying electric and magnetic fields to the heliopause, and meets the cosmic rays and magnetic field of the galaxy.
To which I'd add personal favorites like Walter Raleigh's The Discoverie, Aby Warburg's Mnemosyne, Sigmund Fraud's Moses and Monotheism, Darwin and I Ching; the dreaming of astronomers in superstrings, of astrophysicists in heliopause, of Mandelbrot in fractals and of Mike Davis about Los Angeles.
The two are in search of the heliopause boundary in addition to the outer limits of the sun's magnetic field and the outward flow of solar wind, (https://www.
These materials interact at the heliospheres edge to create a region known as the inner heliosheath, bounded on the inside by the termination shock which is more than twice as far from us as the orbit of Pluto and on the outside by the heliopause, the boundary between the solar wind and the comparatively dense interstellar medium.
Among specific topics are minima of the Centennial Gleissberg Cycle and the heliospheric boundary, characteristics of magnetic flux ropes from the sun to the heliosphere, electron acceleration and spectral hardening of continuum emission in solar flares, Voyager 1 measurements and theoretical modeling of magnetized plasma near the heliopause, and analyses of the evolution and interaction of multiple coronal mass ejections and their shocks in July 2012.
