Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 Space Probes

Joel Goldman

December 3, 2013

The space image(s) that inspired me most, are probably the ones sent back by the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 space probes.

The took pictures of the outer planets and their moons, and sent back other data to be studied by scientists here on Earth. As one of the scientists who worked on the project for 10 years said, it was the most interesting job of her career. I don't blame her. The space probes are still going on their travels, all these decades.

It would be nice to have a Voyager 3 and Voyager 4 to be launched, but because of the bad economic times, that won't be possible now. Maybe some time later.
