Windows 7: Voyager 1 still going strong after 35 years in space.

Voyager 1 still going strong after 35 years in space.

Excerpt:-

As Nasa's Voyager 1 spacecraft continues to explore the very outer shell of our solar system, the deep-space explorer has found the intensity of charged particles from interstellar space has dramatically increased.

Voyager 1 (and its cousin Voyager 2) was launched in 1977. It explored the planets for several years, and was then sent towards the edge of the solar system with the dream of being the first human-made object to explore interstellar space.

Now some 17 billion kilometres from Earth, Voyager has plunged into the heliosheath and seen the solar winds from the Sun drop to zero. Since 7 May 2012, the spacecraft's two High Energy telescopes detected that cosmic ray hits increased five percent in a week and nine percent in a month.

Those energetic particles were generated when stars in our galaxy went supernova.

Alone in the dark, far away from home. At least Voyager isn't sentient.

In a few more years, it will be nothing more than space rubble.
