NASA probe nearing interstellar space

This graphic shows the position of the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 probes relative to the heliosphere a protective bubble created by the Sun that extends well past the orbit of Pluto. Voyager 1 crossed the heliopause or the edge of the heliosphere in 2012 NASA says Voyager 2 may be nearing interstellar space

Since 2007, the probe is in the outer layers of the heliosphere (region of space, where the main component of the environment is the solar wind and the magnetic field of the Sun).

The space probe Voyager 1 may soon have company in interstellar space. At the same time the unit of measurement level nizkozatratnyh particles has found a similar increase in cosmic rays with higher energy.

Voyager 2 is still in the heliosheath, or the outermost part of the heliosphere.

Voyager 1 left the heliosphere in 2012.

How to avoid the latest ‘Got Another Friend Request’ Facebook hoax
Hi.I actually got another friend request from you yesterday.which I ignored so you may want to check your account. Facebook says there is no virus attached to the message, but that if you receive it you should just delete it.

Once Voyager 2 exits the heliosphere, it would be the second human-made space probe to reach the interstellar space after Voyager 1 which managed to exit our Solar System in August 2012. So until Voyager 2 passes through the heliopause, there's no way to be sure precisely where it is with regard to the heliopause.

To help you familiarise with the subject, a heliopause is a bubble formes by the solar wind around out solar system.

"Since late August, the Cosmic Ray Subsystem instrument on Voyager 2 has measured about a five percent increase in the rate of cosmic rays hitting the spacecraft compared to early August", NASA wrote in an announcement.

The NASA probe has reached the edge of the Solar system, the Probe of the American space Agency have recorded increase of the concentration of cosmic rays produced another solar system, which means that he approached the border of interstellar space, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to UKRINFORM. At the moment scientists cannot say when "Voyager-2" will reach the heliopause.

'Venom' sets October box-office record with $80M debut
A very different movie took second place: Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's remake of A Star is Born earned $41.3 million. It seems audiences are ignoring the 28% Rotten Tomatoes score " Venom " is now sporting (the audience score is 89%).

Voyager 2 is the only spacecraft to visit Uranus and Neptune. The probe is now about 118 AU (17.7 billion kilometres, or 10.9 billion miles) from the Sun.

Cosmic rays are superfast particles believed to be coming from sources outside of the Solar System. However, Voyager team members note that the increase in cosmic rays is not a definitive sign that the probe is about to cross the heliopause.

On one side is the heliosphere, the Solar System's bubble carved out by the solar wind. "We're not there yet - that's one thing I can say with confidence", Stone added. Its adventures in the outer solar system led to the discovery of new moons around the gas giant planets.

When the Sun is at minimum - which we're now closing in on - its activity levels are low, and the Solar wind is slower.
