Presenter: Donn Anderson

There are currently FIVE spacecraft either on their way out of our Solar System, or have already left the influence of our Sun. Voyager 1 was the very first to do so. On its way out, Voyager 1 took a series of photos of six of the planets, pictures that have impacted our awareness of our place in space. Come learn about these wonderful pictures and get an update on Voyager 1 itself, sending data back to Earth for more than 46 years!
