Voyager 1 And 2 Probes Amaze Us Again With Another Discovery
We thought that once we passed the Hercules Columns of the heliosphere the probes would stop talking to us. Not because of the energy exhaustion, but because from then on we imagined a desert – the interstellar space! – almost completely empty of matter and therefore also of physical phenomena to detect and to tell. Far from the protective embrace of the Sun, the boundary of our solar system seems in fact to be a cold, empty and dark place…. a vast expanse of frightening nothingness. But we were wrong. The Voyager probes have left the Solar System behind, but the great void they had in front of them is instead proving to be an inexhaustible source of new phenomena.
