Voyager 2 Finds Wall Of Fire And Enters Interstellar Space!

There are a lot of things out there in the
universe that need our attention, but a wall of fire found by the Voyager probes? Yeah, that’s something else. Join us as we explore exactly what’s going
on here. 7. What Are The Voyager Probes? Considering that we’re talking about how the
Voyager Space Probes were the ones that discovered this “wall of fire” in deep space, it would
probably be nice to know what they are, right? Voyager 1 is a probe that humanity sent out
to observe the universe at large, and it’s currently well past Pluto and has shown us
many things about our solar system. In 2017, it was set at around 138 AU’s from
our planet. AU means “Astronomical Unit”, which in this
case means the distance from the Earth to the Sun. So 138 AU’s means that it’s 138 times far
than the Earth is from the sun right now. That’s a really big number. Over 12 billion miles to be exact. That’s the farthest anything from man has
traveled in space. One of its crowning achievements was a photograph
showing a set of sunbeams, and in one of those sunbeams was earth. It was a dot. A dot in a grander scale photograph of our
solar system. That’s how small we are in the scale of our
system when you look from the outside in, we are a dot. An epic dot, but a dot no doubt. But what might shock you even more is that
despite the distance that Voyager 1 has traveled, it’ll never reach the end of our solar system. Our solar system is confined within what is
known as the Oort Cloud. And to reach the edge of that cloud would
take another 30,000 years for the Voyager 1. Which should show just how big our solar system
is, and how condensed the space the planets that are in it is. As for Voyager 2, despite it launching BEFORE
Voyager 1 (by 16 days), it was set on a similar mission to explore the solar system. Albeit via a different route that took it
past Neptune and Uranus. The point here is that these two probes are
the farthest things that humanity has sent into the solar system. They have traveled incredible distances and
are still revealing things about our solar system that continue to both boggle the mind
and astound us. Which of course brings us to that “wall of
fire” I was mentioning earlier… 6. The Wall Of Fire
While it’s true that the Voyager Probes haven’t left the solar system as of yet, that doesn’t
mean they haven’t gone far. They are in a place now that is defined as
“Interstellar Space”, though that classification can mean many different things. In the context of this video though they’re
past the Heliosphere. That is where solar winds emitted from our
sun still blow things outwards. So in many ways, the probes are away from
the reach of the sun. But, what Voyager 2 (backed up by data from
Voyager 1) has found is that once they’re outside that reach, the plasma that is out
in space doesn’t go down, it actually goes up in density by a large margin! “The marked increase in plasma density is
evidence of Voyager 2 journeying from the hot, lower-density plasma characteristic of
the solar wind to the cool, higher-density plasma of interstellar space. It’s also similar to the plasma density jump
experienced by Voyager 1 when it crossed into interstellar space.” And this is what is leading to the whole “Wall
of Fire” thing, because this Wall of Fire is just outside the solar system according
to the probes, and that is a problem in many, many ways. “The Wall of Fire outside the Solar System
is caused by electromagnetic (EM) radiation which is created by plasma and a local space
environment full of raging magnetic fields.” But, while this is terrifying, it proves that
NASA was right to launch not one but two probes to go and explore the universe. Because for all we knew the Wall of Fire might
have just been in one centralized location than a place basically filling up the boundaries
of the outer solar system. “The Voyager probes are showing us how our
Sun interacts with the stuff that fills most of the space between stars in the Milky Way
galaxy,” said Ed Stone, project scientist for Voyager and a professor of physics at
Caltech. “Without this new data from Voyager 2, we
wouldn’t know if what we were seeing with Voyager 1 was characteristic of the entire
heliosphere or specific just to the location and time when it crossed.” 5. The Problem With Plasma
Plasma, if you didn’t know, is the fourth state of matter, and it was always known,
or at least believed, that there was some outside the Heliosphere, as between the suns’
emissions and the rest of the universe pouring things into deep space, it was basically pretty
natural for it to be there. And when Voyager 1 first reached the point
of Interstellar Space, it noticed some slightly higher levels of plasma, but it was Voyager
2 that showed that it was MUCH bigger than anticipated. Plasma is very hot, and while the “Wall of
Fire” is said to be somewhat colder than the sun’s plasma it’s dispersing regularly, it’s
still hot enough to mess with people and objects, which we’ll be talking about later. But more importantly than that is that it’s
thick. This is well and truly a wall of fiery plasma. Which means that if we want to get through
this, we have to be careful in a whole host of ways. But more than that, it means that if there
is this one wall of fire plasma in the universe, there could be many more, and that opens up
a whole new can of worms for what we might have to do to explore the universe, and just
survive it in the most basic of senses. Plus, we didn’t expect this to be in such
concentrations in this part of space, which means we were wrong in pretty much all of
our assumptions up to this point about what lies just outside of our solar system. What else are we wrong about? What else have we not been able to understand
about what’s going on out there? Could we be missing something else? Lots of questions ladies and gentlemen. Before we dive into more aspects of how this
Wall of Fire will affect us, be sure to like the video and subscribe to the channel! That way you don’t miss out on all of our
weekly videos! 4. Leaks? As noted, there are many problems with this
wall of fire, and one of them may just be how exactly this thing is forming. After all, scientists were a bit stunned by
the density that the Wall of Fire exudes in Interstellar Space. But what might be even more surprising though
is that Voyager 2 indicates that part of the reason the field of fire is so thick is that
the Heliosphere has a leak in it. This was discovered when the probe noticed
that there were particles actually leaking out of the boundary of the Heliosphere, which
shouldn’t happen because of gravity and solar winds. But, if it is happening in this area, it’s
possible that it’s leaking the particles in other areas as well. The Voyager Probes are on different sides
of the Heliosphere. One is near the “front” and the other is near
the “side”, quite intentionally I might add. So if the sun is unintentionally adding to
this Wall of Fire, then that means that this field can grow every single day, and every
single year and beyond. So who knows just how big this field could
get? Potentially, it could get so big that it starts
to affect the Heliosphere itself, we honestly don’t know at this point. Thus, while many scientists are thrilled at
what’s going on right now with the Voyager 2’s information, that also means that we need
to be prepared for what could happen with this wall of fire as time goes on. 3. Magnetic Fields and Magnetic Shields
The discovery of the Wall of Fire wasn’t the only thing that people at NASA were interested
in when it was discovered. Instead, it was also the fact that there was
new information given about the magnetic fields that were there in the outer reaches of interstellar
space. You see, our solar system is held within a
magnetic field that is comprised mostly of the suns’ field. Not unlike the orbits of the planets and such. Thus, when you get out of the reach of the
sun via the Heliosphere, it goes to reason that the magnetic field would go off in a
different direction entirely. In fact, that is what everyone at NASA thought
before Voyager 1 & 2 proved them very, very wrong. At first, Voyager 1 pointed out that there
was some odd directions in the magnetic field of interstellar space. Then, when Voyager 2 arrived on the scene
a few years later, its readings proved that the magnetic field of the area was actually
parallel with the one of the Heliosphere. Which is confusing quite a bit of people. Which brings us the need for EM shields. You see, the Heliosphere’s magnetic field
protects the entire solar system, including Earth from cosmic radiation and storms and
the like. And so between the Wall of Fire and the other
magnetic fields out there, any ship we have that we send into the stars beyond our solar
system is going to need a good Electromagnetic Shield itself to be its own protection so
that radiation and other things don’t hurt the crew, the ship, and other vital things. 2. The Question Of Space Travel
Ok, so now let’s talk about one of the biggest problems with this Wall of Fire. Mainly…how are we going to get past it? No, seriously, if we’re going to be talking
about exploring the far reaches of space, that means that we will need to get past our
own solar system, right? Now it’s true that at present we can’t say
for certain that this Wall of Fire encircles the entire solar system, but it’s a safe bet,
and what’s more, the probes were sent out in the direction of where we would likely
travel if we wanted to get into deep space. So, thus, if we want to go see other planets
that are out there, we need to get past the Wall of Fire. And that presents a couple major problems. First and foremost, until we further examine
the plasma, which Voyager 1 & 2 are doing but can’t fully do on their own due to distance
and equipment, we won’t know the proper way to shield ourselves from its impact in the
ways that matter. So at best, we’d be doing guesswork. Which is not something that inspires confidence
when you’re trying to recruit people for a mission:
“Ok team, we’re going on a mission to head through the plasma field, we’ll probably going
to be ok if the shields hold. So…who’s in?” Yeah, I wouldn’t volunteer for that. What’s more, the obvious answer of “go around
the field” isn’t exactly plausible at present either. First and foremost, that could mean a very
long detour, if we’re able to go above, below, or around it at all, we honestly don’t know
just how massive this thing is because we can only see and understand what the Voyagers
detect. So we obviously need more data before that
option becomes viable. Now yeah, we can create plasma very easily
on Earth, we do it all the time, that’s how plasma torches and other items that have plasma
in them exist. But this is on a scale we’re not used to. So we need to come up with ways to get through
the field if we’re going to make it out there. But that’s not the only problem that this
Wall of Fire raises. You see, this is an obstacle that we have
to avoid, it’s true, but what’s the next obstacle? And the one after that? And so on and so forth? The Voyagers will never make it out of the
true solar system, so who knows what else is out there in deep space that we will have
to try and get through? Space is still a mystery to us, and if we’re
not fully ready for what’s out there…it will kill us. 1. Space…The Final Frontier
There have been a lot of interesting things going on in space recently that have gotten
the attention of NASA and other space agencies. This is just the latest in that string. But when you put that string together, you
get a pattern, and that pattern clearly states, “We don’t know jack about the universe”. Think about it, there is a literal wall of
fire just outside the Heliosphere, and yet we haven’t been able to truly see it until
2019? We’ve found whole other galaxies, planets
that may be like Earth, yet we can’t see something outside our own system? The universe is so fast that we need to keep
exploring it, looking at it, and doing whatever it takes to learn as much as we can. Not just for knowledge sake, but for the sake
of humanity in the future. Our goal is still to try and explore the cosmos,
and the more we know, the more we can prepare, the more we’ll truly be able to survive and
enjoy the final frontier. Thanks for watching everyone! What do you think of this interesting discovery
from the Voyager Probes? Does the Wall of Fire fill you with fear,
or suspense, or terror, or wonder? Do you think we’ll ever find a way to get
through it and the other obstacles of space? Let me know in the comments below, be sure

    The United States government not humanity,it's not our solar system it's the solar system Including bang theory, the Caltech Professor knows gaseous plasma does not have gravity , every planet produces electromagnetic fields , other vital things?we who? now this video has gone to Star Trek please stop!

  3. hello 123

    Question 1 should rather be how do we even know there is an edge to reach In space ?
    Some things are best left alone – interfering with the devil

  4. Smart Phone Fix

    There is even danger that we are travelling through galaxy and gradually getting closer to the black hole that means we accelerating even faster tovards BH and bow shock will weaken by accelerating and pushing towards suns magnetic shield until it won't hold any longer s and stellar wind will torn away planets from the sun… And sun wiil stay alone until dies… Become red dwarf… Or brown? Dunno and will be devoured by BH but it will take billions of years…

  5. 4n 2earth

    @ 1:03: "Over 12 billion miles to be exact". WTF???? over any number is all the other numbers up to infinity. How exact is that, really? This is supposed to be a science channel?

  6. 4n 2earth

    This is the most horrible effort to convey information I have ever witnessed. I suggest you go back to cleaning carpets or collecting garbage or whatever you were doing before trying this idea out.

  7. James MacLean

    Im sure the wall of fire is part of a whole shell of fire that looks similar to earths atmosphere…. or similar phenomena around any planet… or star…the restored Gospel has unique clues about these things embedded in it….

  8. Marlin Gilmartin

    So many false facts and numbers…. plus why the heck is this a list? Number seven, the Voyager is bla bla bla.. take science a bit more serious and stop getting your info off fox news network

  9. quercus

    Someday we will travel from planet to planet and discover there are many earth like planets inhabited by who knows what, how wonderful will that be? Just think someone said something as silly a couple hundred years ago about flying. It is amazing the advances we have made, who knows maybe we have just scratched the surface?

  10. Lucifer Beezelbub Mephistophilies the Apocrypha

    That's just it, it's not supposed to be that thick . That's bad it means we've drifted back into the ion cloud of the bands of the milky way. These bands are the element that breaks down the objects our galaxy encounters and merge with it. It's basically the digestive stomach of our galaxy, withholding the elements that it strips from stars and planets and then chucking the leftover stripped husks into the black hole at the center. Life evolved on this planet because for billions of years our system existed in between these clouds allowing microbacteria to drift from open space to here sowing the seeds of life on the surface during our planets early formation. It seems from the data your presenting that we've drifted from our place into one of those clouds. Which also presses another danger, what is pulling us in which the answer would be that our system is caught in the gravitational pull of the Black hole

  11. Jose Caballero

    This guy is a misimformed idiot,to say that Voyagers will never leave the Solar system,bcause it will take 30,000 yrs it does not it wont happen,we might not be around to witness it but it will happen.
    Unless some object crashes into them both before that happens,they will drift in space forever.

  12. Jose Caballero

    So if the sun is so powerful and is one of the smaller stars in the universe,what does that mean for the larger stars.
    Polaris is 40 times bigger than the sun,UY Scuti is over 500 times bigger,how powerful are they.

  13. Terry Burge

    The statement that the voyagers have not pasted out beyond our solar system is wrong. At least one has entered interstellar space. This wall of fire talk is BS. Yes, the cosmic radiation is there and our suns solar wind forms a boundary between our sun's solar system and interstellar space. Ball of fire, really? Nonsense. Sounds to me like you are trying to say 'the boggy man' is waiting out there for us to travel outside our solar system. Nonsense! You don't have a clue what you are talking about.

  14. Leslie Baker

    There are very real non-Terrestrial craft moving around, entering and leaving our Solar System on a regular basis. Everyone should be familiar with matter existing around the planets and the system on seven natural 'octaves' of vibration, just as we have seven planes around and through The Earth. The vibrations, and speed of radiant energies increases from plane to plane by a factor of 49. This includes light which on the astral plane (49^1) travels 49 times faster than we measure it on this 'basic physical' plane. This goes up to x 2,401 (49^2) on level 3. Many of those interplanetary craft have mechanisms built into them to transpose the metal (etc) of the craft and its contents onto a higher plane. This not only allows the craft to travel faster, but with the faster vibrations matter can pass through matter, and most collisions are no longer a problem. It is by the time that one gets to plane 4 (of the 7) that this ratio (49^3) exceeds 117,600, so a craft on level 4 could be travelling at maybe half the speed of light as it is measured on that plane, and be travelling at 50,000 times the speed of light as we measure it here. Look at the video clips of the 'UFOs in space' as seen from various space shuttles, and occasionally you will see a distant craft just fade out. This is because it has been moved onto a higher plane to make the longer journey. Those vibrations will be slowed down at the other end if they need to be on the 'basic physical plane' there ….

    I wanna hear a description of what it would theoretically be like going through it. Like I keep hearing it's dense, but it's defuse so you don't see it but it's cooler than the sun's plasma but it's a hot wall of fire and so on so forth. Now I get radiation and the like in theory how it works but I wanna know in practice what you would feel

    Like say you could fly right through it personally. Would you feel like a wind-like pressure? Would you actually see plasma? Would there be like a sudden barrier of hot? Space is cold though so is it just warmer? Or would it just feel and look like every other dark cold area of space just mathematically it's 'warmer' and you wouldn't feel it in the typical sense? I want some visualization based description.

  16. Space Audio

    Nope. These plasma densities and temperatures are not unexpected and certainly not particularly damaging or dangerous to anything. The "wall of fire" past the heliopause is nothing that needs to be avoided.

  17. Tim Parker

    30 astronomical units from Earth there is a force field omnidirectional keeping humans in this Sektor of space do keep humans contain so they don't spread through the Galaxy I'm really surprised they haven't exterminated us and only contain those but it'll be a long time before we get 12 billion miles from Earth but that's her Voyager just went to the Great Wall of energy the Great Barrier you see on Star Trek is real and the Earth since in a giant water bubble

  18. DEDOE G Pharr

    We can detect a satellite 12 billion miles away, but my phone carrier cant keep me at full bars rite next to a cellular tower. "Pretty advanced technology "!!!!🖕 boost mobile

  19. Phil Rabe

    0:35 sorry, the Voyagers were sent out to explore a once in many hundred years line up of the outer planets, they called it the Grand Tour. By the time the probes reach the edge of the solar system, they don't have the power left to explore anything.

  20. richard bello

    Voyager is a total lie NASA lies about everything the real star wars space program is the Secret Space Program listen carefully to this 🧐

  21. RSEFX

    Aside from some misleading terms, the information here is very poorly organized and presented. Like any movie, it comes down to clear writing, and this writing is sloppy. But the graphics are kinda "pretty" 😉

  23. Dennis Horg

    If the interstellar winds are pushing on the solar system then the solar system would eventually reach the speed of the interstellar winds. That should of already happened..

  24. John Orr

    Buckshit! Fire cannot exist without oxygen. You people think we will swallow anything you throw out there but are esssentially demonstrating you are not to be trusted. This is an attempt to make everyone believe our tax dollars were actually spent on a rover and rocketry to get to mars Etc… When we know nasa and cia stole it all. We don't believe this crap.

  25. Rams495

    I hope the probe sent to Pluto was equipped to further study this stuff yrs from now. It is traveling much faster than the voyagers though they have a head start.

  26. Andrew Heagwood

    If black holes have magnetic fields with poles intersecting strait through it, then we have evidence that something can escape them beyond the event horizon, meaning that either the field is unaffected by the gravitational effects, and/OR electrons move faster than the speed of light. If true, that has some major effects on modern and quantum physics theory.

  27. Sean Wilson

    too bad Hubble couldn't tell us this, eh?

    we look with magnified eyes and all we see are the stars, Galaxies, clusters, super-clusters… but with extended arms, we reach too far, swiftly and precariously… 5:53

  28. long ha

    with all this knowledge……. can't believe we gotta build the wall …… i mean… Walls…. would be more awesome to somehow be happy everyday until we die…. but nah…. only the TOP 5-10% of the world can do that…. all of us gotta pay the bills and maybe we can call in sick so we can do chores / errands and get caught up

  29. Michael McKenna

    Traveling through hyperspace ain’t like dusting crops, farm boy. Without precise calculations we could fly right through a star or bounce too close to a supernova, and that’d end your trip real quick, wouldn’t it?

  30. Rich Hanks

    Ok I'm just a hick from Dallas.
    But what if I told you there is written in the logos that the All Mighty says He was just showing us His glory when He hung the stars.
    And has named everyone of them.
