Voyager program - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1628 words)
Voyager is also the name of a planned series of unmanned probes to Mars, cancelled in 1968.
Voyager was actually a scaled back version of the Grand Tour program of the late 1960s and early 1970s to send a pair of probes to fly by all the outer planets (scaled back because of budget cuts).
Voyager 1 and Pioneer 10 are also the most widely-separated man made objects in the Universe because they are travelling in roughly opposite directions from the sun.
Voyager 1 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1338 words)
If Voyager 1 is still functioning when it finally passes the heliopause, scientists will get their first direct measurements of the conditions in the interstellar medium.
Voyager 1 had as its primary targets the planets Jupiter and Saturn and their associated moons and rings; its current mission is the detection of the heliopause and particle measurements of solar wind and the interstellar medium.
Both Voyager probes are powered by three radioisotope thermoelectric generators, which have far outlasted their originally intended lifespan, and are now expected to continue to generate enough power to keep communicating with Earth until at least around the year 2030.
