The unknown structure on border of Solar system is noticed


The automatic interplanetary station NASA New Horizons has recorded the radiation proceeding from the structure consisting of atoms of hydrogen on border of Solar system. Scientists consider that this education is "a hydrogen wall", however also other sources of photons are possible. The Science Alert edition reports about it. The ultra-violet spectrometer established onboard the probe during the period from 2007 to 2017 has registered the spectral line of hydrogen called Lyman alpha. This line is formed at interaction of the particles which are let out by the Sun with atoms of hydrogen and the subsequent dispersion of electromagnetic waves. According to scientists, observation speaks not only existence of atoms of hydrogen in the most Solar system, but also beyond her limits. Researchers consider that such source of atoms of hydrogen is probably "the hydrogen wall". This structure is formed at interaction of solar wind with interstellar wind. With distance from the Sun streams of the ionized particles weaken and are finally slowed down at achievement of theoretical border — heliopauses. From outer side of a heliopause the shock wave where hydrogen atoms accumulate is formed. Also other source which settles down further away from Earth is also possible, but additional researches are necessary for confirmation of it.
