NASA As if NASA's Voyager mission didn't have enough firsts in its 36-year journey, what with sending the first spacecraft to Uranus, Neptune and, most recently, interstellar space! Now, it has another first back here on Earth: on last night’s episode of the Colbert Report (12/3/13), host Stephen Colbert floated across the stage in a spacesuit worthy of a 1950s-era sci-fi movie and presented Voyager Project Scientist Ed Stone with a NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal. The...

[ Watch the Video: Voyager 1 Encounters An Interstellar Love Song ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online There is no air in space, and there cannot be sound without air. So what did NASA researchers mean when they recently stated that they had detected “interstellar music” which provided strong evidence that Voyager 1 had left the magnetic bubble surrounding the sun and planets known as the heliosphere? That “interstellar music” is actually plasma waves...

Voyager Celebrates 36 Years In Space
2013-08-20 15:40:23

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Thirty-six years ago NASA launched one of the longest missions in the space agency's history, the Voyager 2. The Voyager 2 spacecraft is a sister spacecraft of the Voyager 1 and was designed to explore not only planets like Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, but also the edge of our Solar System. Voyager 2 was able to give NASA an up-close look at Saturn and its moons. The 36-year-old spacecraft made its first flyby of Jupiter...

Has Voyager 1 Finally Left The Solar System? New Analysis Reveals Compelling Evidence
2013-08-15 13:47:59

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to a new analysis from scientists at the University of Maryland, NASA's Voyager 1 has finally left the Solar System – marking the first time a man-made object has entered the Milky Way outside of the Sun’s influence. "It's a somewhat controversial view, but we think Voyager has finally left the Solar System, and is truly beginning its travels through the Milky Way," said study author Marc Swisdak, a UMD plasma physicist....

Voyager 1 Still Within The Confines Of Solar System
2013-06-27 15:36:08

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists are split on exactly where NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft is sitting within the Solar System, but new research from the space agency suggests it is on the last frontier out. A team of scientists wrote in Geophysical Research Letters in March that the spacecraft had already left our Solar System. However, the latest intel from NASA shows that the spacecraft is still sitting just within the edge of our "Solar Bubble."...

Heliopause -- The heliopause is the boundary where our Sun's solar wind is stopped by the interstellar medium. The solar wind blows a "bubble" in the interstellar medium (the rareified hydrogen and helium gas that permeates the galaxy). The point where the solar wind's strength is no longer great enough to push back the interstellar medium is known as the heliopause, and is often considered to be the outer "border" of the solar system. The distance to the heliopause is not precisely...

Saturn's moon Pandora -- Pandora [pan-DOR-uh] is the fourth of Saturn's known satellites. It was discovered from photographs taken by Voyager during its encounter with Saturn by S. Collins and others. Pandora is the outer shepherd satellite for Saturn's F-ring. It has a diameter of about 114 by 84 by 62 kilometers (71 by 52 by 38 miles) and appears to be very heavily cratered. The two largest craters are about 30 kilometers (19 miles) in diameter. No linear valleys or ridges are...
