One way in which the Canadian Galactic Plane Survey has made an important contribution to the understanding of the Galactic interstellar medium is through its polarization surveys. Investigation of these data has enabled a big step in the study of magnetic fields in the interstellar medium and a range of discrete, extended, interstellar objects. In this review, I will discuss the role that the magnetic field plays in the interstellar medium, summarizing the ways in which magnetic field… Expand

The heliosphere—blowing in the interstellar wind
Measurements of the velocity of interstellar Heo inside of the heliosphere have been conducted over the past forty years. These historical data suggest that the ecliptic longitude of the direction ofExpand
