At the poles?

poloidal field A magnetic field with radial and tangential components. The geomagnetic field detected at the Earth's surface is of this form and contrasts with the unmeasurable toroidal field. Source for information on poloidal field: A Dictionary of Earth Sciences dictionary.

When at the metal recycling center, and they turn on their extremely powerful, crane-mounted electromagnet, there's no perceptible deflection compared to its rest state when unexcited. Earth's magnetic field and telluric currents appear to make no difference to it.
At extremely high altitude it would be different, but nobody lives up there.

'Potential' ( nothing proven )
Wildlife have managed to survive untold geomagnetic anomalies, I wouldn't be concerned.

That appears to be better proven than debunked junk science that some people still cling to.

'better proven'

Can you restate that? I can't make hide, nor hair from it.

It is a comparison. Wish in one hand and poop in the other.

Voyager space probes

I've been reading about both of them.
They carried a suite of eleven ( 11) instruments aboard their scanning platforms.
The charged particle and cosmic particle sensors would have broadcast a change in intensity to JPL as the space probe exited the Heliopause and into unprotected space.
Evidently, there is no facility with which to 'image' the geometry of the Heliopause 'surface,' just to detect a change in exposure to cosmic radiation beyond its limit, at a single point in space.
I still don't understand what 'downstream' means in connection with the Heliopause.
I have no idea how NASA, JPL, CalTech could 'know' about the 'shape' of the Heliopause, and where is 'thinness' would occur, only to make educated guesses, as geologists do about Earth's interior based upon seismic studies.
I'm sure I'm 'wrong' about this. Many here will tell you.
My analyst with FOX network did encourage me to quantify my stupidity though, so we'd both know how hopeless my situation actually is. My medication regimen is contingent upon this sort of intelligence gathering. Any additional data would be welcome. Thanks in advance.

Actually two lines in space?

Great News, everyone! The two Pioneer probes are mute, but there is a fifth. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_artificial_objects_leaving_the_Solar_Syste m

Quote:
New Horizons is an interplanetary space probe that ... was launched in 2006 with the primary mission to perform a flyby study of the Pluto system in 2015, and a secondary mission to fly by and study one or more other Kuiper belt objects (KBOs) in the decade to follow, which became a mission to 486958 Arrokoth. It is the fifth space probe to achieve the escape velocity needed to leave the Solar System.

ʻOumuamua was motionless relative to the Local Group when the Solar System plowed past it and flung it off on a tangent. Presumably, the Heliopause trails off in the opposite direction. Any visual representation would have to be conjectural. I think it's a limitation of the reportage, not the science.
