Combined heliosphere-astronomical data and models enrich our understanding both of effects the solar galactic environment might have on the inner heliosphere, and of interstellar clouds. Present data suggest that FeII/DI increases toward the upwind direction of the cluster of interstellar clouds (CLIC) flowing past the Sun. Cloud kinematics and abundances suggest an origin related to a supershell around the Scorpius-Centaurus Association. The solar space trajectory indicates the Sun entered the…

It is well known that the nearby interstellar medium represents a partially ionized gas composed by dif- ferent chemical species, amongst them hydrogen, helium and oxygen as the most abundant

MHD modeling of the Heliosphere: a critical evaluation of different models
The very complicated problem of the solar windinterstellar medium interaction requires a very sophisticated numerical approach. To achieve such a goal first we need to understand very deeply the
