Voyager 2 is beyond the realm of the Sun. Voyager 2 joins its sister ship, Voyager 1, beyond the Sun.
|Artist's concept of Voyager 2 with 9 facts listed around it. Image |
Both spacecraft, even though they are traveling through interstellar space, HAVE NOT left the solar system. Our solar system extends at least 1 light year, 6 trillion miles, out into the Milky Way Galaxy. To travel to the realm beyond the solar system is at least 30,000 years in the future!
Space is a VERY BIG PLACE - even our solar system.
The Voyagers should be able to continue sending back data for years to come.
Well done, Voyagers.......well done.
