Voyager 1 is still not out of the solar system by +Kelly Oakes at +Scientific American

Remember when I said back in October that Voyager 1 might have finally left the solar system? Well, it turns out that the spacecraft, which has been skirting the edge of the solar system for a long time now, is finding it difficult to say goodbye.

According to scientists working on the mission, Voyager 1 has just entered a “magnetic highway“. They hope this road will lead Voyager out of the heliosphere, away from the influence of the sun’s magnetic field… eventually.
