Here is the larger, finished version of the study I posted not too long ago. It's one more piece for the "Introductions" show at Abend Gallery opening this Friday, July 10th.

The heliosphere is the region of space that surrounds our solar system, where the solar wind (plasma) from our sun radiates outward and the magnetic field of the sun dominates space. This area ends well beyond Pluto. There, it meets the interstellar medium and it's boundary protects our solar system from most of the galactic cosmic rays coming from interstellar space.
