New Mass-Loss Measurements from Astrospheric Lyα Absorption
Measurements of stellar mass-loss rates are used to assess how wind strength varies with coronal activity and age for solar-like stars. Mass loss generally increases with activity, but we findExpand

NONLINEAR COLLISIONLESS PERPENDICULAR DIFFUSION OF CHARGED PARTICLES
A nonlinear theory of the perpendicular diffusion of charged particles is presented, including the influence of parallel scattering and dynamical turbulence. The theory shows encouraging agreementExpand

The Heliosphere’s Interstellar Interaction: No Bow Shock
No Shock Ahead of the Sun The boundary of the heliosphere is the region where the solar wind interacts with interstellar space, and it marks the edge of our solar system. Based on observations fromExpand

Dust in the local interstellar wind
The gas-to-dust mass ratios found for interstellar dust within the solar system, versus values determined astronomically for the cloud around the solar system, suggest that large and smallExpand

Interaction of the solar wind with the local interstellar medium: a theoretical perspective
The interaction of the solar wind with the local interstellar medium (LISM) is attracting renewed interest, thanks to the possibility that the Voyager spacecraft may, in the not too distant future,Expand

IBEX—Interstellar Boundary Explorer
The Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) is a small explorer mission that launched on 19 October 2008 with the sole, focused science objective to discover the global interaction between the solarExpand

Coronal Heating by Magnetohydrodynamic Turbulence Driven by Reflected Low-Frequency Waves
A candidate mechanism for the heating of the solar corona in open field line regions is described. The interaction of Alfven waves, generated in the photosphere or chromosphere, with theirExpand

Global Observations of the Interstellar Interaction from the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX)
What's Happening in the Heliosphere The influence of the Sun is felt well beyond the orbits of the planets. The solar wind is a stream of charged particles emanating from the Sun that carves a bubbleExpand

Interstellar pickup ions and quasi‐perpendicular shocks: Implications for the termination shock and interplanetary shocks
A new mechanism for the acceleration of pickup ions by repeated reflections from the electrostatic cross shock potential of a quasi-perpendicular shock is presented. The acceleration mechanism,Expand
