Voyager

Voyager

On this day in 1977, the Voyager 1 space probe was launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Its mission was to study the most distant planets in the solar system. It still is transmitting data back to NASA. There has been some debate about if it has left the solar system yet, as there is much debate about where the solar system actually ends.

Onboard Voyager 1 is the Golden Record: a disc that contains information about humanity, should it ever meet intelligent life out in the Universe.

With this being the anniversary, it’s a good time to review the Star Trek Voyager episode that featured Voyager. I guess they forgot about Star Trek the Motion Picture: Voyager comes home pissed.

In the show. the Voyager probe makes it all the way across the galaxy and inspires another planet’s apex species to try the tech and blow their world up.

Janeway and crew provide tech and medical assistance and leave vauge assurances that we’re more careful with our tech now.

 

honestly, we’ve created a mini asteroid belt of space debris around the earth, hopefully in burn up on reentry sizes, but not all of them
