Don't Miss Voyager Head Scientist Ed Stone on the Colbert Report

Topics: interview, fun, Voyager 1 and 2

In the most ernest segment of the Colbert Report I've seen in a while, Voyager chief scientist (and Planetary Society member!) Dr. Ed Stone was interviewed about the Voyager mission. He highlighted some of the famous pictures from the mission, as well as the launch on the old-school Titan IV rocket way back in 1977.

Stephen Colbert honored Stone with NASA's Distinguished Public Service Medal at the end of the show.

Watch Dr. Stone's segment below:

And see Stephen award the service medal:

You can also see Ed Stone featured in our Voyager 35th Anniversary event last year, just after Voyager 1 entered interstellar space:
