Who’s visiting who? This chart of solar system exploration shows every robotic space probe currently exploring (or about to explore) a major solar system object… except for the Earth and Sun of course, because there are way to many of those to show on one chart.

NASA's Voyager 1 and 2 probes launched in 1977 to visit the outer planets of the solar system. After 35 years in space, the twin probes are approaching the edge of our solar system.

The Voyager Golden Record sent by NASA in 1977 on both space probes, Voyager 1 and 2. contents and Carl Sagan's work: http://voyager.jpl.nasa.gov/spacecraft/goldenrec.html

The Voyager Golden Record was compiled by two people in love: the astronomer Carl Sagan, and Ann Druyan, the creative director of the project, who he would later marry. recorded the electrical impulses of her brain and nervous system, her heartb

The unmanned Voyager 1 and 2 probes were launched in 1977 on a mission to visit all the outer planets of the solar system. After 35 years in space, the twin probes are approaching the edge of our solar system.

It blows my mind that Voyager 2 managed to fly by all four outer planets! The fortunate alignment of Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Uranus only occurs once every 175 years.

European Space Agency’s Planck space telescope looked back at the afterglow of the Big Bang, and those results have now added about 80 million years to the universe’s age, putting it at 13.81 billion years old.

The Rosetta spacecraft is due to wake up on the morning of January 20 after an 30-month hibernation in deep space. For the past ten years, the three-ton spacecraft has been on a one-way trip to a 4 km-wide comet. When it arrives, it will set about performing a maneuver that has never been done before: landing on a comet’s surface.
