The first results from Nasa's Interstellar Boundary Explorer (Ibex) spacecraft have shown unexpected features at our Solar System's edge.
Ibex was launched nearly one year ago to map the heliosphere, the region of space defined by the extent of our Sun's solar wind.
Ibex's first glimpses show that the heliosphere is not shaped as many astronomers have believed.
A series of papers in the journal Science outlines the results.
It is great that we have the technology to update what we thought in the past, I am more interested in what is beyound the edge of our solar
