Solar Wind Around Pluto instrument confirms solar wind slows farther away from the sun
Measurements taken by the Solar Wind Around Pluto (SWAP) instrument aboard NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft are providing important new insights from some of the farthest reaches of space ever explored. In a paper recently published in the Astrophysical Journal, a team led by Southwest Research Institute shows how the solar wind—the supersonic stream of charged particles blown out by the Sun—evolves at increasing distances from the Sun.
