Interstellar wind “blowing chaos” solar system

Earth and other planets revolve around the sun, and the solar system itself through space to run. In a slow trip, it will pass through a fine expanse of local interstellar clouds.

The solar system through space at run time, the star will go through thin clouds.

Earth and other planets revolve around the sun, and the solar system itself through space to run. In a slow trip, it will pass through a fine expanse of local interstellar clouds.

Now, astronomers have been flowing into the solar system through changes in the direction of helium atoms and found that the signs of potential instability in the cloud.

One of the researchers, the United States Institute of San Antonio Ao Xinan David McComas said that if this change is real and sustained tens of millions of years, presages our solar system will occur more dramatic changes.

McComas, University of Chicago, Priscilla Frisch and his colleagues, published in the September 6 “Science” magazine. Their findings may indicate the heliosphere (the solar system to resist the harmful cosmic rays huge “bubble”) changes. Heliospehric charged by the solar wind and the particles having a size and shape depends on the solar wind and the local external force of the internal gas pressure of interstellar clouds – interstellar wind.

Boulder, Colorado City, Jeff Linsky was not involved in the study, said the new findings if confirmed, it means that the heliosphere is in a different direction, except in the local interstellar cloud formation to another area.

Frisch does not endorse this argument, he believes that this is just a small-scale turbulence. University of Alabama Huntsville City of Gary Zank commented that no matter what, this discovery will solar storms and cloud interaction model provides “an interesting new twist in the form.” Further, McComas, said solar only can record the change in the environment has been “is a big event of the.”
