Voyager 1 probe becomes first man-made object to leave solar system



quote:

Scientists report they have strong evidence that the unmanned spacecraft has crossed the magnetic boundary separating the solar system's sun, planets and solar wind from the rest of the galaxy. The announcement comes more than 36 years after the unmanned spacecraft lifted off on a journey that gave humans close-up views of Jupiter and Saturn before heading toward deep space.


quote:

"In leaving the heliosphere and setting sail on the cosmic seas between the stars, Voyager has joined other historic journeys of exploration: The first circumnavigation of the Earth, the first steps on the Moon," said Ed Stone, chief scientist on the Voyager mission. "That's the kind of event this is, as we leave behind our solar bubble."


quote:

Voyager 1 is currently 18.8 billion kilometers (11.7 billion miles) from Earth, NASA says. A new study in the journal Science suggests that the probe entered interstellar space around August 25, 2012.

They announced it, but there were skeptics. I think they finally have proof that it left sometime about a year or so ago.

They just don't build things like they did in the '70s anymore.

This isnt Germans. There is some argument as to when Voyager actually left the solar system, as its not exactly a hard boundary. They've been analyzing data for a while, and this is the first I've heard of a consensus.
