Solar System, in Perspective
This artist’s concept puts solar system distances in perspective. The scale bar is in astronomical units, with each set distance beyond 1 AU representing 10 times the previous distance. One AU is the distance from the sun to the Earth, which is about 93 million miles or 150 million kilometers. Neptune, the most distant planet from the sun, is about 30 AU.
Informally, the term “solar system” is often used to mean the space out to the last planet. Scientific consensus, however, says the solar system goes out to the Oort Cloud, the source of the comets that swing by our sun on long time scales. Beyond the outer edge of the Oort Cloud, the gravity of other stars begins to dominate that of the sun. The inner edge of the main part of the Oort Cloud could be as close as 1,000 AU from our sun. The outer edge is estimated to be around 100,000 AU. 
NASA’s Voyager 1, humankind’s most distant spacecraft, is around 125 AU. Scientists believe it entered interstellar space, or the space between stars, on Aug. 25, 2012. Much of interstellar space is actually inside our solar system. It will take about 300 years for Voyager 1 to reach the inner edge of the Oort Cloud and possibly about 30,000 years to fly beyond it.
Alpha Centauri is currently the closest star to our solar system.

Popular Science: Watch a Crow Solve a Complex Puzzle

by Collin Lecher

Crows are smarter than great apes and about on par with a 5-year-old child. We know they (and similar birds) can already complete complicated tasks, like putting a stick through a tube to finagle out food. But in this BBC video, the New Caledonian crow, after thinking it over briefly, easily completes a multi-step puzzle. 

I was not sure about the solution to this puzzle until very close to the end of the video. I choose to believe this says more about the crow than about me. Bravo, crow.

[video via: BBC

I just watched a Nova program about this last night. New Caledonian crows are freakin’ amazing. They have a brain-body size ratio on par with a chimpanzee. I definitely want to learn more about crows, now.
