Shifting cosmic winds suggest that our solar system lives in a surprisingly complex and dynamic part of the Milky Way galaxy, a new study reports. Scientists examining four decades’ worth of data have discovered that the interstellar gas breezing through the solar system has shifted in direction by 6 degrees, a finding that could affect how we view not only the entire galaxy but the sun itself.

The sun is passing through a wispy cloud of interstellar gas known as the Local Interstellar Cloud. As the sun moves through it, it sweeps up neutral interstellar helium into a cone behind it.

NASA's LRO Spacecraft Captures Images of LADEE's Impact Crater

LRO has imaged the LADEE impact site on the eastern rim of Sundman V crater.

If the solar wind is like a stream of water spreading out on a flat sink bottom, then the boundary where the flow breaks against onrushing soapy water (interstellar gas) is the termination shock (recently encountered by the spacecraft Voyager 2) and the region of slower-moving water beyond it is the heliosheath.

New Horizons has a cool teaser trailer! | 6/17/15 | EarthSky NASA began exploring the planets of our solar system by spacecraft decades ago, but no spacecraft has ever been to Pluto.

"NASA began exploring the planets of our solar system by spacecraft decades ago, but no spacecraft has ever been to Pluto. The National Space Society (NSS) is celebrating the fast-approaching New Horizons spacecraft encounter with Pluto – coming on July

Artist depiction of Huygens landing on Titan. Credit: ESAIt’s almost exactly 10 years ago that humanity parachuted a spacecraft into Titan, that moon of Saturn that could hold chemistry similar to what sat on Earth before life arose. Called Huygens, the probe survived for just about an hour on the surface on Jan. 14, 2005, transmitting information back about conditions there and on the way down.
