Neutral interstellar gas atoms reducing the solar wind Mach number and fractionally neutralizing the solar wind

Abstract

Many stars are known to drive stellar winds of the solar wind type. Thus when moving through the ambient interstellar medium these stars not simply ionize this medium but also interact as moving stellar wind systems. Only neutral interstellar gas components can directly enter the inner stellar wind region and there undergo charge exchange reactions with the… (More)
