Well ATSers experts. Do the craft have enough power and/or strong enough to pass through?
While passing through the heliosheath, Voyager 1 experienced many sudden and drastic changes in the surrounding magnetic field driven by structures called current sheets.
– there are three distinct types of current sheets.
“The structures, appearing as proton boundary layers (PBLs), magnetic holes or humps, or sector boundaries, were identified by characteristic ffluctuations in either magnetic field strength or direction as the spacecraft crossed nearly 500 million km (310 million mi) of heliosheath in 2009. PBLs are defined by a rapid jump in magnetic field strength, with one observed event resulting in a doubling of the field strength in just half an hour.” said the team. “Passing through a sector boundary led to a sudden change in direction of the magnetic field. Magnetic holes saw the field strength drop to near zero before returning to the original background strength. Magnetic humps consisted of a sudden spike in strength and then a return to initial levels.”

You should post the link of the video that you put in the thread you had about this subject! It was interesting!
( I was about to answer when it got closed... )
i did search first different tittle
If the bubbles compress as we seem to see in the images you provided, it means there are entry points in the system that will be easier to get through, like the window concept for re-entry, is that right?
well there is an optical effect of round shaped objects
my interpretaion is this is a "layer" between two boundries
that is many millions of 100 million wide "mini lenses"
and one theory would be that this "layer" is not only reflecting rays but also up to a point abosorbing them
it has profound implications
the optical effect of a curved medium density "bubbles"
could act as a complex "compound" lense"
link to compound lens info
it would be very interesting to know what other boundries there is
and what the affect is on light coming to our telescopes through these layers?
