Heliopause is the theoretical boundary where the Sun's solar wind is stopped by the interstellar medium.

Description / Specifications[edit]

The Heliopause is very important to light sail ships since it represents a border beyond which many lower technology solar sailing ships cannot exceed. In some ways, poets liken Heliopause to the edge of the world for solar sailing ships.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

Heliopause represents the symbolic border of an astrographic hex as designated by the IISS.
