    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!!

    Linky Thing

    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.

    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 Tongue

    I think panning to catch that might be a tad tricky Wink
