Winter is coming…shifty interstellar winds

The Huffington Post posted this article today.  According to the expert, “it could be a harbinger of more dramatic changes in our solar system.”  Probably true, if only because things happening in space tend to be dramatic to begin with.  But the statement seems a little OVER dramatic–maybe he needs attention, funding or both?

Our satellites should be safe–it’s not like they will blow away or anything, but who knows (aside from the expert).  There may be an increase in interesting, but random, satellite energy events resulting from this, though.  And our protective space bubble, the heliosphere, might get a little smaller.  But it’s fairly big to begin with, so there’s some room for shrinkage, right?  Don’t panic, just read the article.
