A new “tsunami wave” generated by the sun has helped NASA scientists confirm that Voyager 1 is currently traveling through interstellar space, or the area between the stars that is filled with charged particles known as plasma, the US space agency reported on Monday.
NASA’s Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) discovered an enigmatic “ribbon” of energetic particles at the edge of our solar system and a new study says it may be just a glimpse into how vast the influence of the galactic magnetic field really is.
On last night’s episode of the Colbert Report (12/3/13), host Stephen Colbert floated across the stage in a spacesuit worthy of a1950s-era sci-fi movie and presented Voyager Project Scientist Ed Stone with a NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal.

Man has officially embarked on a new adventure that surpasses Lewis and Clark's excursion across the US, as NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft officially reaches interstellar space.
Data obtained through NASA's Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) project has revealed that neutral interstellar atoms are flowing into the solar system from a different direction than previously observed.
Thirty-six years ago NASA launched one of the longest missions in the space agency's history, the Voyager 2.
According to a new analysis from scientists at the University of Maryland, Voyager 1 has finally left the solar system – marking the first time a manmade object has entered the Milky Way outside of the Sun’s influence.
Saturn's moon Pan -- Pan, the innermost known satellite, was found from photographs taken by Voyager during its encounter with Saturn. It was discovered by Mark R. Showalter in 1990, 9 years after the Voyager encounter. Pan is located 133,583 kilometers from the center of Saturn and is within the Encke Gap of Saturn's A-ring. It acts as a shepherd and is responsible for keeping the Encke gap open. It has a diameter of 20 kilometers. ----- Discovered by: Mark R. Showalter;...
