NASA's spacecraft Voyager one has left our solar system and is now struttin' its way through interstellar space at a speed of 61000kms and hour. It took this little guy thirty six years to break free but he's done it, happy day!!

Amazing how it's still sending a signal back when it's so far away and built with decades old technology.

 

Just 68KB of computing power! Still learning something new about Voyager 1.

 

I hope EMI is happy that no one in interstellar space will ever hear the Beatles without visiting Earth.

so now what. 5000 years or whatever till it reaches the next point of interest?

 

lol exactly.. i wonder whats next.. and how are we studying it? radio transmissions? even if it's physics changed completely, would we know? im not sure i understand what the goal is.. but it is awesome and im extremely intrigued.. wish we had a camera pointed out of it and a way to view what it sees.. THAT would be incredible.

Well, they mentioned it'll only be able to communicate with Earth until around the year 2025 before I guess it peters out. Hopefully NASA is scheming an updated version of one of these babies so I can see the new craft reach.. another point of interest before I die. I know very little about interstellar space but at least we know Voyager is swimming in plasma, livin' the dream.

Here comes the sun is such a perfect song for aliens to find.

Voyager gave us some pretty cool pictures like super volcanoes erupting on one of Jupiter's moons.

Can we make one with out newer technology that will catch up with this one? And make another one to catch up with that one? Every 30 years? That's a tradition I can get behind.

      Superb spacey experimental techno from Zachary Lubin
      Out on Jeff Mills imprint AXIS records.
      I absolutely LOVE the first intro beatless track especially.

      if any of you follow space travel, you will know this Thursday marks the first orbital test flight of NASA's new manned deep space rocket, the Orion Space Vehicle.  it will be perched atop one of the largest rockets ever assembled, the Delta 4, and by now actually is, it's completely assembled on Launch Complex 37B at Cape Canaveral.  this site has a ustream feed and a countdown clock, so check it out.  the next era of manned space travel is about to begin, after the retirement of the beloved Space Shuttle.
       
      "A United Launch Alliance Delta IV will herald a new era in manned Space Flight with the launch of the Orion capsule for the new Space Launch System (SLS)."

      "The Delta IV will be in the heavy configuration with a common core booster and two identical strap-on boosters. This will be the seventh Delta IV Heavy to launch from the Cape Canaveral launch site and the ninth overall."

      A beatless synth piece I did, if you have 8 minutes to spare and are partial to slow spacey things...
