NASA Voyager 1 current position deep in the cosmos
NASA announced that voyager 1 deep-space explorer has left its cosmic backyard and is now in space between the stars.
So where is voyager 1 right now?
The NASA Voyager 1 current position is in interstellar space, around 19 billion kilometers (12 billion miles) away from our solar system.
That is just a wow, a huge feat for mankind. NASA astronomers are overwhelmed with this astonishing job. According to NASA “We made it!” said a smiling Dr. Ed Stone, Voyager’s Project Scientist for over 40 years, speaking at a briefing today. “And we did it while we still had enough power to send back data from this new region of space.”
“Voyager has boldly gone where no probe has gone before, marking one of the most significant technological achievements in the annals of the history of science, and as it enters interstellar space, it adds a new chapter in human scientific dreams and endeavors”.
NASA science chief John Grunsfeld said in a statement. “Perhaps some future deep-space explorers will catch up with Voyager, our first interstellar envoy, and reflect on how this intrepid spacecraft helped enable their future.”
To the outskirt of our solar system, NASA Voyager 1 was launched on Sept. 5, 1977. It was in August 2012 that NASA’s robotic space probe reached a new region of interstellar space after almost 35 years.
NASA Space exploration project with Voyager 1 and 2
A NASA spacewalk was aborted during space operations and maintenance at International Space Station (ISS) on July 16, 2013, according to NASA official statement.
Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano and his fellow spacewalker Christopher Cassidy brought their work outside the International Space Station (ISS) to an abrupt end after water started leaking into Parmitano’s helmet.
The Italian astronaut and his NASA colleague made it back inside the space station safely, and both of them are fine.
