Mysterious Particle Ribbon at the Edge of Solar System

More recently, some interesting discoveries has been done by Voyager probes that were later verified by data obtained from IBEX and Cassini probes. They have discovered the particle ribbon at the edge of solar system. The bubble of gas enveloping Earth and the rest of the solar system has some seriously weird formation where it abuts interstellar space , a region expected to show only smooth uniformity.
This is a shocking new results for up and one that is not entirely understood. The stops out streams of ionized particle that blast out into space in all directions at about a million miles per hour, forming a protective bubble and defining edge of the solar system.
But the rivers of gas face pressure– and some unknown physics- when and where they encounter charged particles and magnetic fields emanating from space. The solar system is currently through a rather wispy interstellar cloud in the milky way galaxy, which gives the heliosphere plenty of creating room. But the outside world apparently has some sharp elbows. In their first big picture views of heliosphere, scientist discovere a well defined neutrally charge particles, precisely tailored, process unknown by magnetic fields in the interstellar sea. The ribbon is organised around this magnetic fields. Really it seems me interesting when I read this news.
