See Two Spacecraft Journey To Outer Reaches Of Solar System
After 40 years of service, the two Voyager spacecraft are heading deeper into the cosmos, with Voyager 1 holding the record as the farthest human-made object. Following a period exploring the outer planets, the probes set off on separate courses for the stars. Voyager 1 entered interstellar space in 2012, and Voyager 2 is nearing that boundary. While they may stop sending data home soon, their journeys will continue for millions of years.
