Voyager-1 Continues

 

 

 

 Nice piece by Frank Roylance in the Baltimore Sun on Voyager-1. Love the closing…

Sometime around 2025, the two craft will fall silent. In 40,000 years, Voyager 1 will sail as Earth’s ambassador among the stars of the constellation Camelopardalis — the Giraffe — in the northern sky. Voyager 2 is headed for Sirius, the brightest star in the sky. It should arrive in 296,000 years.

Awesome.
