Very interesting. This little spacecraft is still there doing it's thing and revealing some very interesting characteristics of what is going on ahead of our bow wave, magnetic bow wave that is.
I have known about our magnetospherical bow wave for a long time now but always thought it was relatively uniform with not much interesting going on there, wow, was I wrong.

I highly recommend a bit of delving into this tiny crafts accomplishments, there is quite a lot written about this data in scientific journals. It does make fascination reading.
When I got home last night I was chatting to my daughter about writing blog posts about space. I turned to her and said, "What on earth does one write about space starting with the letter "W"? Without batting an eyelid she said Wall-E. I was as surprised as can be, I didn't even think about writing about a movie. I told her that I'd never even seen the movie Wall-E and she replied that we could watch it while having dinner, she has the DVD and so while eating grilled vegetables and chops we watched Wall-E.

I decided not to write about it but instead decided to write about the Wind spacecraft, a lot less disturbing in my opinion and far more fascinating.
God has put this huge unseen bubble around Earth to ensure that we are protected from any disaster that could come from outer space, thank you Lord.
From me to you, blessings and good health, Geoff in South Africa.
