Description

One of the cutting edge areas of astronomy has to do with the where our solar system ends and where interstellar space begins. The Sun’s influence extends much further than we previously thought and we have just started to explore the outer edges of our home solar system with space probes launched in the 1970’s. What kind of objects are out that far from the Sun?
