We have used new measurements of the B/C ratio in galactic cosmic rays at both low and high energies by the Voyager and AMS-2 spacecraft, respectively, along with propagation calculations using a truncated LBM to examine the implications of these new measurements over an extended energy range from a few MeV/nuc to 1 TeV/nuc. We find that the predictions from both the truncated LBM and the Diffusive Reacceleration model for GALPROP both agree with the Voyager and AMS-2 measurements of the B/C…

Galactic Cosmic Rays from 1 MeV to 1 GeV as Measured by Voyager beyond the Heliopause

Voyager 1 has now been beyond the heliopause for over 5 years since its seminal crossing of this boundary in August of 2012. During its epic 40 year journey of ~122 AU out to this boundary and beyond
