Cool article on Voyager 1 linked by Drudge this morning. What a remarkable technical achievement. Did you know that Voyager 1 was originally intended as a 4-year mission? And here we are 33 years later still receiving scientific data. In fact, in 2002 NASA repaired it when it was 7 billion miles from earth. No shit! Voyager 1 will be entering interstellar space within the next 4 years. Too bad some of our....wait for it....Democrat politicians aren't strapped aboard that mother fucker.
Anyway, I was digging around on the Internet and found this site, which provides weekly updates on both spacecrafts (Voyager 1 and 2). After all these years, Voyager 1 still has some propellant left and uses it I'm guessing on periodic roll maneuvers necessary for accurate scientific data. NASA reports that Voyager 1 and 2 scientific instruments will have to be turned off no earlier than 2025 due to lack of power. But I don't think there's anything out there between our sun and the next stellar body that Voyager 1 will reach within the next 15 years. We may never know because NASA will be doing Muslim outreach work, right? Isn't that what our Cooncracker in Chief has envisioned for them? It's cold and dark out there anyway, much like the modern Democrat Party.
Leave it to me to mix political hate speech in on any topic. ROFL!!
