Amazing.. Voyager 2, launched on 20 augustus 1977 has traveled 18,946,036,024 km so far with a speed of 35.8 km/s! ⚡ 🌌
@stux My uncle, and my wife's uncle both worked together on that spacecraft. It has survived them both!
Yup, I was more thinking of the probes themselves though, not their ability to do science. It is amazing that they are still sending back data and that it can still be received! My uncle worked on the electronics, my wife's was the nuclear health physicist trying to convince the general public that no, if the probe crashes into the earth at lift-off, that there will NOT be a disaster!
