  • Ibex- March 22, 6pm


    Presented by Dr. Eberhard Moebius, Prof. of Physics, Space Science Center, UNH. 400 years after Galileo pointed a telescope at the sky for the first time, astronomers have added neutral atoms to their toolbox with the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX), launched October 19, 2008. Two neutral atom (ENA) cameras take global images of the interaction of the solar system with its galactic neighborhood. They have returned stunning images of the solar system boundary, where the solar wind is forced to slow down by the surrounding interstellar gas. Dr. Moebius explains how this works!
