Hey Space Placers!

From NASA:

The Voyager talk at NASA Headquarters to be held on April 28 at 1 pm ET will be open to the public. If you are in the area, please stop by. Otherwise, the program will be streamed live on NASA TV and on the NASA website for those who cannot attend in person. Following are details from the recent press release. A flyer with details and stunning graphics is attached. FYI…

NASA will hold a special Science Update at 1 p.m. EDT on Thursday, April 28, to discuss the unprecedented journey of NASA's twin Voyager spacecraft to the edge of our solar system.

The event will be held in NASA headquarters' Webb auditorium at 300 E St. SW, in Washington. It will be broadcast live on NASA Television and streamed at:  http://www.nasa.gov/

After 33 years in space, the spacecraft still are operating and returning data from about 10 billion miles away from our sun. The Voyagers also carry a collection of images and sounds from Earth as a message to possible life elsewhere in the galaxy.

The participants are:

-- Ed Stone, Voyager project scientist and professor of physics, California Institute of Technology
-- Ann Druyan, creative director, Voyager Interstellar Message Project; Carl Sagan's co-author and widow
-- Suzanne Dodd, Voyager Project Manager, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.
