A tribute to those that built and launched them in 1977.

We still wait for Voyager 6's launch.

I thought Voyager had been in interstellar space for a while now...a couple of years.

I'm kind impressed that it will be operational until 2020.

An inspirational pair of probes, IMO in terms of long term achievements by man into space I'd say only second to the Apollo program.

I've wondered that, I think they may just be leaving the heliosheath, or gravitational influence of the sun, or the oort cloud... never really sure.
