Voyager observes magnetic field fluctuations in heliosheath

Authors


Abstract

For the past several years, as the two Voyager spacecraft near the outer reaches of the solar system, they have been sending back observations that challenge scientists’ views of the physics at the edge of the heliosphere, the bubble created by charged particles flowing outward from the Sun. A new study looks at magnetic field fluctuations and cosmic ray intensity observed by Voyager 1.
