8,400,000,000 Miles To Home

November 05, 2003

CNN is reporting that Voyager 1 has left the solar system.

Well not completely. But it is believed to be in the region of the heliopause. With another 17 years or so of power on-board scientists should get a chance to discover what's out there.

Can you imagine that a man made object is now traveling at 1,000,000 miles per day and is 90 times farther away from us than the sun? Incredible.
