Discover Space: The Voyager£9.99
The twin Voyager spacecraft have been speeding through the cosmos for two-thirds of the entire space age. Dreamt up in those heady, halcyon years that preceded the Apollo 11 landing as a ‘Grand Tour’ of the outer planets, and finally launched in 1977, they went on to redefine our understanding of the Solar System.
The past 40 years have been revelatory. Between them the Voyagers visited four planets and 48 moons, 23 of which we had no idea existed. They saw new rings, volcanoes, geysers and even aurorae. Now Voyager 1 is pushing the very limit of exploration, as it ventures beyond the solar bubble our star forces out around it and into the unknown of interstella space. It’s an astounding legacy for a pair of probes that each have around 240,000 times less computing power than an average smartphone and an eight-track tape for a brain.
The Story of the Voyager is one of the most complex there is – so as well as giving you the rundown of their myriad discoveries, we asked people involved in the mission to relive it in their own words. They include Carolyn Porco, who spotted the still-unexplained spokes in the rings of Saturn and helped organise the Solar System’s family portrait’: Suzanne Dodd, mastermind of the ongoing insterstella mission; and Ed Stone, Voyager’s project scientist since 1972 – before the spacecraft were even called ‘Voyager’. But what of the future? NASA director of planetary science James Green reveals how the Voyagers continue to shape modern space exploration.
It’s a majestic tale that’s echoed through the years and is expected to continue for a decade of more. Won’t you join us for the ride?
