The NASA probe made it to the border of the Solar system

NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft is now making its way towards the interstellar space and it appears that the probe is onto something.

The only details known to the NASA team about the Voyager 2 is that it is nearly 11 billion miles (17.7 billion kilometers) away from home.

So, up until "Voyager 2" crosses heliopause, it will be impossible to say with certainty where it is in relation to her he is.

For the last 11 years, since 2007, Voyager 2 has been traveling towards the outermost layer of what is known as the heliosphere. Beginning last August, Voyager 2's Cosmic Ray Subsystem (CRS), built to detect cosmic rays, noticed a five percent increase in these rays hitting the probe.

Voyager 1, launched in September 1977, exited the heliosphere in August 2012, but about three months before that, it began detecting an increase in the rate of cosmic rays hitting the spacecraft - just like Voyager 2 is detecting now. A motion from Voyager 1, voyaging at the speed of light, takes 17 hours one way to communicate with Earth. It is based on two different instruments on Board the spacecraft "Voyager-2".

"A development in cosmic rays is that its outside our solar system" NASA Reported In May 2012, Voyager 1 experienced an addition in the frequency of cosmic rays akin to what Voyager 2 is now disclosing. At the same time the unit of measurement level nizkozatratnyh particles has found a similar increase in cosmic rays with high energy.

Some cosmic rays get blocked by the heliosphere.

However, the Voyager scientists also note that increased cosmic ray is not the only and definitive proof of the spacecraft entering the intersteller space.

Voyager 2 is in a different location in the "heliosheath" or the outer region of the heliosphere than Voyager 1 had been, and possible differences in these locations points to the fact that Voyager 2 may experience a different exit timeline than Voyager 1, partly because the heliopause moves inward and outward during the Sun's 11-year activity cycle.

"We are seeing a change in the environment around "Voyager-2", there is no doubt, says project scientist Voyager ed stone, a physicist from Caltech". - We learn much in the coming months, but we still have no idea when we reach the heliopause.

Considering that Voyager 2 was not released at the same time as its predecessor or the same path, scientists can not predict when it will pass through the heliopause.

Spacecraft the Voyager series was created by jet propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
