    interstellar dust: tiny solid grains in interstellar space thought to consist of a core of rocklike material (silicates) or graphite surrounded by a mantle of ices; water, methane, and ammonia are probably the most abundant ices. interstellar medium (ISM): (or interstellar . The interstellar medium begins where the interplanetary medium of the Solar System ends. The solar wind slows to subsonic velocities at the termination shock, 90— astronomical units from the Sun. In the region beyond the termination shock, called the heliosheath, interstellar matter .

    Interstellar medium, region between the stars that contains vast, diffuse clouds of gases and minute solid particles. Such tenuous matter in the interstellar medium of the Milky Way system, in which the Earth is located, accounts for about 5 percent of the Galaxy’s total mass. We discuss cosmic dust in the interplanetary medium focusing on its interaction with the solar wind and recent observational results related to such interactions. The dust contributes to pick-up ions in the solar wind and dust collisional vaporization can explain the observed heavy inner source pick-up ions, as well as the presence of molecular.

    The numerical modeling of the self-consistent interaction of the partially ionized local interstellar medium with the solar wind yields detailed estimates of the distribution of neutral particles throughout the heliosphere. The solar wind undergoes long-term variability . The interstellar medium (or ISM) is the name astronomers give to the tenuous gas and dust that pervade interstellar space. Whilst the ISM refers to the matter (interstellar matter, also.

In presenting the many models and concepts that have been developed to explain different aspects of interactions between the solar wind and the local interstellar medium (LISM), 1 it should be emphasized that the underlying physics is not always well constrained.

This is a consequence of only a single spacecraft mission into the outer. To study the effects of interstellar pickup protons and turbulence on the structure and dynamics of the solar wind, we have developed a fully three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic solar wind model that treats interstellar pickup protons as a separate fluid and incorporates the transport of turbulence and turbulent heating.

The size of the heliosphere is determined by a balance between solar-wind ram pressure and interstellar pressure.

Voyager 1, now just beyond 80 AU, will soon reach the first boundary in this complex structure, the solar-wind termination shock.

Geophys. Pickup ions (PUIs) appear to play an integral role in the multi-component nature of the plasma in the interaction between the solar wind (SW) and local interstellar medium (LISM).

Three-dimensional (3D) MHD simulations with a kinetic treatment for neutrals and PUIs are currently still not viable. Spacecraft such as the Pioneer, Vela, and Voyager have explored the interplanetary medium between the orbits of Mercury and Pluto.

The insights derived from these missions have been successfully applied to magnetospheric, astro-solar, and cosmic ray physics. This book is an overview of these insights, using magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flows as the framework for interpreting objects and processes.

IBEX Finds Surprising Changes at Solar Boundary. The interaction of the solar wind and interstellar medium creates energetic neutral atoms of hydrogen, called ENAs, that zip away from the heliosheath in all directions. Some of these atoms pass near Earth, where IBEX records their arrival direction and energy.
