NASA Love: The Voyager probes

Finally, it's official! I've been waiting for this day, just because these are the most awesomest probes ever launched from Earth. It's nearly unbelievable that they could still be functioning enough to transmit data back as far as they are to give us a glimpse of what lies beyond our sun's reach. I LOVE THIS STUFF.


NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft officially is the first human-made object to venture into interstellar space. The 36-year-old probe is about 12 billion miles (19 billion kilometers) from our sun.
