However, the researchers also found that the signal has not yet reached provides a sure sign regarding the hydrogen wall, or what Voyager did, meanwhile, he regularly scanned the sky with his Alice ultraviolet spectrograph.
The study revealed that the New Horizons probe detected a strong front of UV light at the edge of our solar system, far beyond what it should be There was no "hydrogen wall", reports Science News.
The New Horizons spacecraft, now located at a distance of nearly four billion miles from Earth and already far beyond Pluto, has measured what is a signature of the remotest regions of the US The Sun's Energy ̵
From now on, NASA researchers are certain that the New Horizons; Di e Probe, which launched the former Pluto in 2015, can see this limit.
Wayne Pryor of Central Arizona College told ScienceNews that if the ultraviolet signal begins to fade, the researchers suspect that the New Horizons probe has broken through the wall

Recent data suggest that the labor market is strong and underscore the health of the US economy despite continued trade tensions. Microchip shares fell 9.9 percent, which is one of the largest declines in the S & P segment after disappointing second-quarter revenue forecasts.
This hydrogen wall is the outer boundary of our home system, the place where our solar wind bubble ends and where a mass of interstellar matter that is too small to break through this wind rises and pushes inward. Similar future observations of New Horizons are planned approximately twice a year. Each of the three rockets saw more ultraviolet light that was farther from the sun than expected when there was no wall.
At present, our dense planetary system is racing past a colossal "nearby cloud" of gas, which extends to 30 light a long time past, which also has its own special blasts called "interstellar breeze".
Leslie Young of the Southwest Research Institute, in Boulder, Colo, said, "We see the threshold between being in the solar neighborhood and in the galaxy."
The Voyager spacecraft first collected data indicating the existence of a barrier on the edge of the "heliosphere", the name for a bubble around our solar system formed by the solar wind. Once this task is over, the mission will monitor the UV emissions at the edge of the solar system for the next 10 to 15 years and hopefully find out exactly what causes them.
When the ultraviolet light goes down New Horizons may have left the wall in the rearview mirror. However, if it is not dispersed, it is possible that the signature comes from a source that is further away.
