We consider the acceleration of solar, interplanetary, and interstellar particles at the solar-wind termination shock, predict expected composition and energy spectra, and discuss possible observable consequences. The acceleration of a small fraction of solar wind ions incident on the termination shock may explain low-energy enhancements in the spectra of several elements observed by Voyager beyond ~ 60 AU. Other possible particle sources are also discussed.
