Voyager 1 spacecraft enters new region of solar system
SPACE.com: NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft entered a newly discovered part of space on the edge of the solar system, the agency announced Monday.
The spacecraft, which has been exploring space for 35 years, is now looking into what scientists are calling a ‘magnetic highway.’ The highway lets charged particles from the heliosphere take an ‘exit ramp’ and lets particles from the galaxy outside enter.
Scientists believe this is the final region of the solar system the Voyager 1 must travel across before making it to interstellar space.

There is live entertainment with a 40 bands and musical acts from the region. Each day, a different stage show appears, featuring rock, pop, blues and jazz genres. As for food, a variety of treats is available ranging from Bavarian to Asian dishes. When sampling the mulled wine, try the Bavarian gluhwein or Swedish glogg.

«Our understanding of what constitutes intelligence is utterly relative. If an aborigine drafted an I.Q test, for example, all of Western civilization would probably flunk. We have a very convenient and self-serving way of defining intelligence. If an animal does something, we call it instinct. If we do the same thing for the same reason, we call it intelligence.»
Zoe has been living under a tree with a man named Elijah. I found her wandering the perimeter of the underpass looking for a guy named Shorty who had something that she “needed”.
She could barely talk.
“I had a bad night last night,” she muttered.
Zoe’s right eye was swollen shut after being punched.
She left me looking for Shorty.
Later on, while walking through an empty lot nearby, I found a wet photo album in a pile of trash. It smelled awful so I just wrapped it up in plastic and put it in my bag. I didn’t really look at it until I returned home. Upon closer examination, I realized that this was probably Zoe’s album.
