Studying the Sun-Earth connection.
Using NASA's Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX), scientists have devised the best model yet for the appearance of a vast ribbon of neutral atoms that curls through the boundaries of Earth's solar system.
Scientists compile data from IBEX, Voyager, and computer models to show that the heliosphere just isn't moving fast enough to create a bow shock.
On April 5, 2010, the sun spewed a two million-mile-per-hour stream of charged particles toward Earth; two NASA Heliophysics System Observatory Missions observed the storm from complementary viewpoints.
