NASA uses 'Plan B' to reorient Voyager 1 in interstellar space

NASA scientists needed to reorient the 40-year-old Voyager 1 - the space agency's farthest spacecraft so its antenna would point toward Earth, 13 billion miles away. Their first option, thrusters for reorienting the probe were wearing out. Enter Plan B.

NASA's Voyager 1 is riding a huge cosmic tsunami

NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft, the first and only object made by humanity to reach interstellar space is still riding a cosmic tsunami it hit in February, 2014.

NASA Voyager 1 discovers new space region at edge of solar system

Scientists are receiving puzzling data from Voyager 1, launched more than 35 years ago, and now 11.5 billion miles from the Sun, about to leave our solar system's heliosphere and enter the interstellar space medium that pervades the Milky Way Galaxy.

35 years on, is Voyager 1 bidding farewell to the Solar System?

On September 5 1977, NASA’s Voyager 1 left Cape Canaveral. Thirty-five years later, Voyager continues to transmit data back to Earth and may now, finally, have stepped beyond the perimeter of the Solar System.

NASA's Voyager 1 set to leave solar system, 11 billion miles away

NASA's Voyager 1 has reached the edge of our solar system and its is flying out into interstellar space. The craft built by NASA and launched in 1977, traveling at 17 km/second is now 17,970,000,000km or 11,100,000,000 miles away from the Earth.

Distant Voyager seeks the answer blowin' in the wind

Pasadena - This week NASA's Voyager 1's spacecraft performed a maneuver that it hadn't done for 21 years so that it could gather data about the solar wind in the outer reaches of the solar system.

The heliospheric current sheet results from the influence of the Sun's rotating magnetic field on the plasma in the interplanetary medium (solar wind). The wavy spiral shape has been likened to a ballerina's skirt.
