In September 1977, NASA launched the twin Voyager Spacecraft to probe the outer reaches of our solar system. Voyager I is clipping along at nearly 38,000 miles per hour and is more than 14 billion miles from Earth. Having taken a different path, Voyager II is roughly 12 billion miles from Earth.
Thousands of years from now, the two spacecraft will leave our solar system, but their instruments will quit long before that happens.
I can only imagine what these two crafts have encountered during their journey.
