Voyager Journey to the Stars 5
Cosmic Journeys examines the great promise of the Voyager mission and where it will lead us in our grand ambition to move out beyond our home planet. The two Voyager spacecraft are part of an ancient quest to push beyond our boundaries... to see what lies beyond the horizon. Now tens of billions of kilometers from Earth, two spacecraft are streaking out into the void. What will we learn about the Galaxy, the Universe, and ourselves from Voyager's epic Journey to the stars?

December 19, 1972... the splashdown of the Apollo 17 crew capsule marked the end of the golden age of manned spaceflight. The Mercury.... Gemini... and Apollo programs had proven that we could send people into space... To orbit the Earth.... Fly out beyond our planet... Then land on the moon and walk among its ancient crater.

The collective will to send people beyond our planet faded in times of economic uncertainty, war, and shifting priorities. And yet, just five years after Apollo ended, scientists launched a new vision that was just as profound and even more far-reaching.

It didn't all go smoothly. Early computer problems threatened to doom Voyager 2. Then its radio receiver failed, forcing engineers to use a back up. Now, after more than three and a half decades of successful operations, the twin spacecraft are sending back information on their flight into interstellar space. Along the way, they have revealed a solar system rich beyond our imagining.

The journey was made possible by a rare alignment of the planets, a configuration that occurs only once every 176 years. That enabled the craft to go from planet to planet, accelerating as they entered the gravitational field of one, then flying out to the next. The Voyagers carried a battery of scientific equipment to collect data on the unknown worlds in their path. That included a pair of vidicom cameras, and a data transfer rate slower than a dialup modem.

ABOUT US
Here at SpaceRip, we value the exploration of the unknown. We surpass boundaries for the sake of uncovering the mysteries of the cosmos and what they may tell us about our origin and our future. With our videos, we hope to educate our viewers on how we fit into the universe, and more so how we can do our part to better it.

We have partnered with MagellanTV with the goal of providing our viewers with insight regarding our uncertain future on Earth and beyond. Equipped with knowledge, we hope to inspire people to enact change and pave the way for a better tomorrow.

So they could still communicate with things that are billions of km away from 1977 and I can't even get full wifi bars upstairs...#Interesting

Isnt it time for a voyager 3 mission, with technology from this age? I think it would even discover more.

I vaguely remember back in the 60"s
having a smoke
laying awake at night looking up at the stars and thinking ...
Damn I really got to get that hole on my roof fixed sometime

Goodbye, Voyager  (1 and 2).
Thank you for your wonderful contribution, tuck your wires and circuits in, solar winds get nasty out there, interstellar is no joke...sniff...sniff...
You've switched your backup thrusters to conserve power? Just checking.
Your mission, is never over.
Who ever you meet out there, tell them we can be a messy bunch, at times, we suck...
But, every now and then, we can also do wonderful things, like love...

Every time after watched this kind of documentaries, I always have the same feeling. We human being are so tiny and we complains everyday about what happens in our life. We need to let go, because these are nothing compare to what happens outside of our home.

That is possibly the best decision NASA has made. Sending spacecraft out of solar system and exploring beyond. We should do it again with the newest technology we have. Great Program!..

Its make me laugh when i see people around us fights for fake powers and domination. In reality we humans are nothing more than a peice of few trillion atom arranged in random crap.
may one day we realize what we did to our earth.
our only true home.

Its amazing how something we did, will be out there for thousands, millions of years, and may one day find a resting place just like earth.

I'm so glad they had Ann Druyen on this documentary. It's appropriate and she has a beautiful way with words just like her husband Carl Sagan.

Many people don't seem to know that it'll take another 100, 000 years or so for Voyager to reach the nearest star Alpha Centauri....incomprehensible distances, boggles my mind when i think about it. I think a turtle crawling from Earth to the Moon might make it there before Voyager reach Alpha Centauri.
