Did Voyager 1 Spacecraft Exit the Solar System?

Scientists are claiming that new data from the Voyager 1 indicate its exit from the solar system might have come and gone two months ago .

Voyager 1, which left Earth on Sept. 5, 1977, has since sped to a distance of 11.3 billion miles (18.2 billion kilometers) from the sun, making it the farthest afield of any manmade object

For two years now, data beamed back to Earth by Voyager 1 has hinted at its close approach to the edge of the solar system, a pressure boundary called the heliopause

In short, in late August, cosmic ray collisions sharply rose, and solar particle collisions sharply fell: two indicators of a transition through the heliopause.

I wonder what the gravity is out there.
Isn't it 32ft per sec per sec everywhere.
Hey someone is making a high altitude jump today will he reach a terminal
velocity of only 250 miles per hour. The news says 700 miles per hour.
Will NASA tell us the radiation levels in outer space from Voyager 1.
