Voyager space probe bids farewell to Solar System, enters deep space

NEW DELHI: Some 18 billion kilometers away from home, the 35 year old Voyager 1 spacecraft is about to become the first manmade object to leave the Solar System and enter the frigid and lonely interstellar space. In a statement issued by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), California, which built and operates the Voyager space probes, Project Manager Ed Stone said, "The latest data indicate that we are clearly in a new region where things are changing more quickly. It is very exciting. We are approaching the solar system's frontier." http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/home/science/Voyager-space-probe-bids-farewell-to-Solar-System-enters-deep-space/articleshow/14274355.cms
