NASA Space Success

Since Voyager 1 was launched on 5 September 1977, and its sister spacecraft, Voyager 2, on 20 August 1977 I have followed their journeys. The NASA probes' initial goal was to survey the outer planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, a task completed in 1989. Then they were dispatched towards deep space, in the general direction of the center of our Milky Way Galaxy..
After 33  years the probes are still working and sending back information. They have reached the edge of our solar system and will soon cross the boundary into interstellar space.

All I can say is AWESOME!
