  • Top: the heliosphere travels through the interstellar medium (artist's concept):
    1. Termination shock: the solar wind collides for the first time with the interstellar medium, slows down and changes direction.
    2. Heliosheath: the outer region of the heliosphere; the solar wind is compressed and turbulant
    3. Heliopause: the boundary between solar wind and interstellar wind where they are in equilibrium.
    4. Bow shock: the shock wave caused by the heliosphere in the direction it travels through the interstellar medium.
  • Bottom-left: water running into a sink as an analogy for the heliosphere and its different zones
  • Bottom-right: the energy of the solar wind's particles drop drastically as the wind slows down at the termination shock

Dates are landing dates in UTC. Except for the Apollo program, all soft landings were unmanned.
  • Luna 2 was the first man-made object to reach the surface of the Moon (bottom-left). Still frame from a video transmission, taken moments before Neil Armstrong became the first human to step onto the surface of the Moon, at 02:56 UTC on 21 July 1969. An estimated 500 million people worldwide watched this event, the largest television audience for a live broadcast at that time.[1][2]
