Passing Pluto

Voyager I has left the Solar System. After 36 years and 12 billion miles, it has entered the domain known as interstellar space. As one of the cornerstone projects of NASA, America should be extremely proud.

Think of all of the items that are bought and paid for with American Tax Dollars. Roads, environmental cleanup, currency production, infrastructure – most of the time no one gives these a second thought. But America and the scientists of NASA used every bit of the accumulated knowledge and science of mankind to build a device that was launched, tracked and has successfully transmitted data back to its origin for over 36 years.

For the first time in human history, a man-made object has left the solar system. That is mind-boggling. From the time humans first turned their attentions skyward, they must have wondered how and when they would ever visit the heavens. NASA was a product of our greatest generation. The race to the moon and the astronauts of Mercury, Gemini and Apollo that got us there may not have been fully appreciated at the time. But there is no doubt that we’ve received a return on our investment.

Pictures returned by Hubble, results from experiments via the shuttle missions and eyewitness accounts from those that have had the privilege of space travel have fueled the dreams of tomorrow. In the mean time, the little satellite known as Voyager will continue to do its job, as it travels even further that anyone ever conceived.
