Voyager 1 is nearly out of the solar system - 33 years after its launch, and 10 billion miles from Earth, its still transmitting with less power than an avergae PC (270 watts). Its recorded a drop in the solar wind speed to zero, indicating its nearly out of the influence of the Sun - in 5 years or so it will become Earths first Inter Stellar probe!!
I was about 8 months old when it was launched in 1977!!

It always amazes me when I look at the diagrams and charts that show the distances. I was 5 when it was launched.

Just been reading about it on the BBC site - fascinating stuff!!
Quote: 33 years after its launch
It's older than me, and still going strong after 10 billion miles.
If I ever travel thar far (it's only round the world 417,000 times!), I might need a few replacement parts
travelling at c 38000mph if my (very poor) maths is correct....fascinating
