Voyager space craft

One of my favorite things and my domain name pays homage to it. Fifty-five years after humans first escaped the bounds of Earth and launched a satellite into orbit, we are about to cross another frontier. We will soon extend our reach for the first time into true outer space – the vast emptiness beyond the protection of the sun.  Voyager 1 was launched in 1977.  Exploring the outer planets, it was pointed toward deep space and a new mission. Voyager will be outside our own solar system and hopefully new clues into the origins of the universe. Voyager 1 has enough fuel and power to send messages until 2020.
