More Evidence that Voyager 1 Has Left the Solar System

The SciGuy notes that that Voyager 1 has been exposed to increasing amounts of high energy cosmic rays since June; and experienced a sudden and dramatic drop in exposure to charged particles from the Sun. This suggests that Voyager 1 is at the edge, or already passed the edge, of the heliopause--the outer limits of the solar system.
