Voyager 1, the satellite that was launched over 30 years ago has now stepped into the history books as the first man made object to leave our solar system and enter intersteller space travel. Currently Voyager 1 is headed for a nearby star and will arrive there in about 40,000 years. It's unknown as to what, or who, we will/could find but many are hoping that at some point in the distant future. The satellite will make contact with an alien race which will then prompt them to contact us back. Scientists placed a golden disc within the satellite which on one-side houses a record of sounds of the Earth including a song that is meant to share the human emotion of loneliness. The other side houses a star map in an attempt to help the alien race to locate us.
Guest (Sep. 15th - 10:40am) It is amazing how 30 years ago we were able to build something that 1) broke 2) fixed itself and 3) is still operational (transmissions take 17 hours to receive) and yet we choose to focus on fossil fuels, cheap-slave labour, and ensuring everything doesn't last more than a week before you have to get a new one. *sigh*
Good job NASA, you know how to construct something.
bryan (Sep. 15th - 12:09am) It is funny how the universe works, the more people believe in something, the more it comes in to reality. Aliens and humans have communicated many times before, we just need to change our current societies perspectives, and we can once again reap the benefits of their knowledge.
