Voyager's Last View

Charlene Anderson • August 01, 2002

Home. Family. This will be Voyager's enduring legacy: It has changed forever the feelings raised by those words. Through its robotic eyes we have learned to see the solar system as our home. Through its portraits of the planets we know that they are part of our family. Apollo astronauts showed us a tiny Earth alone in the blackness of space. Now, with these images, Voyager has shown us that Earth is not really alone. Around our parent Sun orbit sibling worlds, companions as we travel through the Galaxy.

The Planetary Report, Vol. 21, No. 1: Evolving Visions

Charlene Anderson • January 01, 2001

From the Editor: Mars has definitely been the planet in the news these past two months, and two events have triggered larger-than-normal reverberations in the Society. First, on November 22, Gerald Soffen died. Then, on December 4, while we were wrapping up this issue, Mike Malin and Ken Edgett announced their latest news-making discovery -- this time of sedimentary layers on the Martian surface.
