Cloud transitions are predicted for the past ∼3 Myrs, including the departure of the Sun from the Local Bubble interior 44,000–150,000 years ago. 5 Interstellar Dust The particle populations formed by the interactions between the solar wind and interstellar dust, gas, and cosmic rays are emissaries between the cosmos and inner heliosphere, varying as the Sun moves through clouds. About ∼1% of the mass of the cloud surrounding the Sun is contained in interstellar dust grains. 5 µG, and flow into the solar system.

2005) have recently completed. Accordingly, since the multi-fluid models provide a computationally feasible approach to investigating problems in the solar wind, we adopt this approach here. As discussed by Zank et al. (1996), each of the three thermodynamically distinguishable regions of the heliosphere listed above acts as a source of neutral H atoms whose distribution reflects the character of the plasma distribution in the region. Each of the three neutral atom components is represented by a distinct Maxwellian distribution function appropriate to the characteristics of 30 The Significance of our Galactic Environment the source plasma distribution.
