Abstract

“We made it,” Voyager project scientist Ed Stone announced at a 12 September briefing at NASA headquarters in Washington, D. C. NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft, the most distant human-made object, is now the first such object to enter interstellar space, the space between the stars. “The 36-year-old probe is now sailing the uncharted waters of a new cosmic sea, and it has brought us along for the journey,” Stone said.
