Data from Voyager's low-energy charged particle instrument, first reported in December 2010, have indicated that the outward speed of the charged particles streaming from the sun has slowed to zero. The stagnation of this solar wind has continued through at least February 2011, marking a thick, previously unpredicted "transition zone" at the edge of our solar system.
"There is one time we are going to cross that frontier, and this is the first sign it is upon us," said Tom Krimigis, prinicipal investigator for Voyager's low-energy charged particle instrument and Cassini's magnetospheric imaging instrument, based at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Md.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Scientists analyzing recent data from NASA's Voyager and Cassini spacecraft have calculated that Voyager 1 could cross over into the frontier of interstellar space at any time and much earlier than previously thought. The findings are detailed in this week's issue of the journal Nature.

I agree with you spot on!
while trying to explain this to a friend I came up with a useful analogy.
Take 2 people who have near perfect eyesight.
Now make them wear prescription glasses that are not meant for them.
Then have them look at each others eyes, through these two lenses, and try and gather an accurate visual assessment.
how good of a method would that be for collecting data?
Seems some of your theories probably do hold credence even more credence than NASA's own Theories etc.

Lots of data has changed...
We on;y recently learned about the fluff cloud . its density can very well be bossible fur pushing the outer limits of the heliopause back closer to the sun.
exciting times non the less
