Dear ISWI Participant:
There are three items today:
University of Iowa space physicist Don Gurnett says there is
solid evidence that NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft has become
the first manmade object to reach interstellar space, more
than 11 billion miles distant and 36 years after it was launched.

For your information:
The 3rd NAOJ symposium and
The Seventh Hinode Science Meeting
12-15 November 2013
The poster for this meeting is attached as the first pdf.
The Hinode (Solar-B) is a highly sophisticated observational
satellite equipped with three advanced solar telescopes. It was
launched on 22 September 2006 UT (23 September in Japan time).
Its solar optical telescope (SOT) has an unprecedented
0.2 arcsec resolution for the observation of solar magnetic fields.
It would resolve a feature with the size of 50cm, if it observed
The X-ray telescope (XRT) has a resolution of three
times as high as Yohkoh, and the EUV imaging spectrometer (EIS)
has sensitivity ten times as high as the ESA SOHO instrument.
These X-ray and EUV telescopes would reveal the heating mechanism
and dynamics of the active solar corona.
What is Hinode ?
Info on the Hinode Science Center is attached as the second pdf.
If you have news to share, please send it in to me.
Most faithfully yours,
Editor of ISWI Newsletter
