Wow! @ThePrintIndia@twitter.com just published my piece without even removing the Editor's comments... (see image: in bold and caps). This is on top of not waiting for me to review the playback and hastily publishing. Extremely unprofessional.
@ShekharGupta@twitter.com - Please look into this.

Wow! Did not expect even 100 people to subscribe to my articles on jatan.space just a week after launch! :D
Lots of cool science stuff coming your way. 🚀

That is the best rocket launchpad location in the world, period.

Though radio silence on the landing failure remains a bummer. Not releasing images or a description of after claims of finding it is total disappointment.

Alright peeps, here's Voyager Interstellar 101, with pretty graphs from the research papers and comparison of results between both @NASAVoyager@twitter.com spacecraft.

Here we go! (1/n)

Before the heliopause, saw spikes in the plasma density and temperatures. This spanned the Sun-Mars distance. , however, saw no such spikes and only noted a gradual decline.
(9/n)

saw a transition region between the heliopause (dotted vertical line) and interstellar space, which had increased plasma density. And spanned a distance as large as that between the Sun and Saturn, confirming a 25 year old prediction!
(8/n)

More strikingly, before crossed the heliopause (HP in the graph), it saw two ‘pocket’ regions (humps in the graph) in the Sun’s bubble where the galactic magnetic field had moved in, bringing energetic cosmic radiation with it. saw no such thing.
(7/n)

But for , the change wasn't abrupt. Many solar charged particles were found to be leaking out of the heliopause to interstellar space for about about half the Sun-Earth distance, puzzling scientists.
(6/n)

Both and saw a drop in amount of charged particles from the Sun as they entered interstellar space and likewise an increase in galactic cosmic radiation.
(5/n)

On to the intriguing results from the interstellar passage.
found the galactic magnetic field to be weaker than . But Voyager 2 observed something before the heliopause that 1 didn't - A strong "magnetic barrier" spanning the Sun-Venus distance!
(4/n)

Brief before the results: The Sun’s magnetic field forms a protective bubble that blocks a lot of cosmic radiation. The outermost edge of this bubble is called the heliopause, the boundary where the Sun’s magnetic field and the interstellar/galactic magnetic field meet.
