Voyager still going

Filed under Uncategorized

Just happened upon this page about the current status of Voyager 1 and 2.

Those bots are still going, some 9.5 billion miles from here.

The page is pretty boring stuff, till you realize, these are commands and responses sent to robot spacecraft launched 30 years ago, which are now outside our solar system!

With any luck, my kid’s kid’s kids will get to take a day trip out to check out their progress and be back in time for dinner.
