Beyond Pluto: The Search for the Edge of the Solar System

Herbert O. Funsten
Intelligence & Space Research

In July, we finally visited the last major body of our solar system, Pluto. But what lies beyond? The stellar wind from our Sun forms an enormous nearby bubble. This “sphere of our Sun,” or heliosphere, extends far beyond Pluto and forms a protective cocoon that shields us from cosmic radiation.

Beyond Pluto: The Search for the Edge of the Solar System

In this talk, we will travel to the edge of the solar system, peer into the structure and dynamics of the outer heliosphere as it interacts with the interstellar medium and anticipate the future of the solar system as it moves through our galactic neighborhood.
