During the first NASA Google+ Hangout news briefing on Wednesday, July 10, the agency shared news that the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) mission has for the first time mapped out the structure of the solar system's tail. Like a comet, the solar system has a tail called a heliotail, that is shaped like a four-leaf clover, according to new IBEX data.
Since its launch in 2008, IBEX has been observing the interactions between the solar wind and the interstellar medium at the edge of our solar system. The briefing presented new observations of the outermost boundary of our solar system's heliosphere, the region of space influenced by our sun.
