Sheldon asked the Naked Scientists:
   What happens when the solar winds of different stars meet? Will there be a wave, or some sort of new solar current?
What do you think?

firstly in most of the galaxy it is highly unlikely that they ever will meet because stars are so remote from each other that coming within a few times the size of the solar system with each other is a very unlikely event.  even if they did meet the results would not me particularly spectacular and would probably need a space probe local to the boundry to detect them
