    Do we have a stringent criterion for the frontier of the solar System yet?

    The problem is things are not as they were predicted 30 years ago about the final boundary between our solar system wind and magnetic field and the conditions between interstellar space proper and the interface between the two. So now they are finding wild fluctuations in particle counts but no change in magnetic field polarity. It has the physics guys climbing the walls trying to figure it all out.

    Read that earlier today and posted on Facebook.

    While religion shoots girls who want an education, science has sent a spacecraft into interstellar space.

    I believe in NASA!

    It's still here, still communicating with Earthies. Weird results about the magnetic field strength and direction now though. Interstellar space is a lot different then they thought. And that little craft will be good for at least another ten years where it will be a third further away than it is now, definitely in interstellar space and probably have more surprises in store.
