The article was very interesting to read because it discussed a much larger solar wind field that surrounds our solar system. A solar wind that could be used to propel solar sailed craft out and away from our solar system to the next one.


I am thinking that just like a hurricane the solar wind patterns would be not as strong the closer to the sun we are just like the center of a hurricane is very calm compared to the traveling away from the center of the storm or the sun where the solar winds would actually increase in strength.

Even our solar system is like a mutant.  You know with the tail and all? Just in my silly/thoughtful moods.
But like a mutant I wonder if it has a conjoined twin some where out there too far to detect yet?

I think its quite possible that if we were to follow the tail that eventually we would come across another solar system where the solar winds of both solar systems would be conjoined like you mention.


Sorta like several fruit flies with silk spun around them in the same spider web but spread out across the surface of the spider web with heavier spider silk spun between them.


A bullfrog with a light in its belly is nothing more than a glutton looking to shine otherwise.
