Voyager 1 Follow Up

Hey Space Placers!

NASA has released another update on Voyager 1 - see my June 18 blog. The cosmic ray hits keep on coming AND increasing which means that Voyager 1 is getting close, very close to entering true interstellar space. As the chart below indicates the cosmic ray hits really took off in June.

See the great video about Voyager 1 and 2 here

I think it will be very soon that Voyager 1 enters the realm of the stars. What a day that will be!
