SolarSystem Portrait. This narrow-angle color image ofthe Earth, dubbed 'Pale Blue Dot', is a part ofthe first ever 'portrait' ofthesolarsystem taken by Voyager 1. The spacecraft acquired a total of 60 frames for a mosaic ofthesolarsystem from a distance of more than 4 billion miles from Earth and...
Approaching SolarSystem's Edge, Voyager Probes Detect A Foamy Sea of Magnetic Bubbles. A frothy moat, not a shield, protects us from cosmic rays.
The planet is also the second largest in our SolarSystem, and is second only to Jupiter in terms of moons (62 confirmed). Much like Jupiter, numerous pictures have been taken ofthe planet by a combination of ground-based telescopes, space telescopes and orbital spacecraft.
The multiple exposure ofthe extremely thin faint ring appears as a broad light band crossing the center ofthepicture. The background stars look like
If Voyager 2 took a picture, then both of them could take the same kind of pictureofthesolarsystem. Of course they are a lot further out, than when V2 was at Neptune. Everything would be smaller, less detailed and dimmer now.
Voyager 1 passed the boundary of interstellar space in 2012, while Voyager 2 is in the outer reaches ofthesolarsystem.
The Voyager-1 spacecraft has become the first manmade object to leave theSolarSystem. Scientists say the probe's instruments indicate it has moved beyond the bubble of hot gas from our Sun and is now moving in the space between the stars. Launched in 1977, Voyager was sent initially to study...
Here, the Voyager 1 spacecraft, encapsulated in a Centaur Standard Shroud, is hoisted up the gantry to be mated with its Titan-Centaur launch vehicle at Space Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force
Since then, both Voyagers have been speeding out ofthesolarsystem and still communicating with Earth an astounding 41 years later.
Voyager surfs SolarSystem's edge By Jonathan Amos Science correspondent, BBC News...
A Short Documentary of Voyager 1 leaving our beloved home, this may bring tears to your eyes, Voyager goes on living and messages still returning today. UPDATE: Voyager took a pictureof our planet earth this year you can see on nasa.gov.
The Voyager spacecraft returned thousands of images from the planets and moons oftheSolarSystem over the years. They showed us the intricacies of
...diagrams, illustrating the location of our solarsystem, our systems of notation and various weights and
The Voyager program is a spacecraft program of 2 probes, Voyager 1 & 2, with a mission to explore and probe space outside ofthesolarsystem.
TheSolarSystem is our local neighborhood in space. This incredible system of celestial pobjects contains a star, eight planets, 140 moons, and a
The heliopause is the outer edge ofthe heliosheath where thesolar wind slows down to zero.
Hubble reveals new 'interstellar road map' of probe's journey through the unexplored territory beyond our solarsystem. NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft is now 13 billion miles away from earth.
This video explains how the Voyager, one ofthe longest-serving space probes, is about to leave our solarsystem.
