Experiment examining a SLICE of the interstellar medium: (Phys.org)—When you look up at the stars at night, the space between stars looks empty. But, yes there is something there. It's called the interstellar medium. An experiment from the University of Colorado will fly on a NASA suborbital sounding rocket from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico on December 15 to study this space between the stars.
More evidence of the importance of galaxy-galaxy collisions. Here, the European Southern Observatory has caught a galaxy, ESO 137-001, in the process of having its interstellar medium stripped away as its collides with neighbors in the Norma cluster...

For the first ten billion kilometres of its radius, the solar wind travels at over 1 000 000 km/h. As it begins to drop out with the interstellar medium, it slows down before finally ceasing altogether. The point where the solar wind slows down is the termination shock; then there is the heliosheath area; then the point where the interstellar medium and solar wind pressures balance is called the heliopause; the point where the interstellar medium, traveling in the opposite direction…

I made this short film about Pioneer 10 & 11 for my final project at University: 'The Interstellar Medium'. Usually had this sub open for inspiration while I was creating it so I thought I should share it here!
Looking In The Sun's Rear-View Mirror: A New Map Of The Local Interstellar Medium
Looking In The Sun's Rear-View Mirror: A New Map Of The Local Interstellar Medium. The first comprehensive map of the local interstellar medium — the gas drifting between the nearest stars — will not only help theorists better understand the dynamics of our tiny swath of the galaxy, but represents the first crucial step in paving the way for interstellar travel, says Seth Redfield, an astronomer at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, and colleagues
Researchers at the Max Planck institute in Germany have discovered large quantities of organic molecules at the center of the Milky Way that resemble life-bearing amino acids in their complexity. The new-found presence of this complex organic molecule, iso-propyl cyanide, is a good indicator that amino acids themselves are floating throughout the interstellar medium. If this is indeed the case, it in turn suggests that these wandering amino acids may have played a vital role in the synthesis…
