Voyager 2 launched on August 20, 1977, from Cape Canaveral, with Voyager 1 closely following it on September 5. Both spacecraft are still active, traveling through space over 10 billion miles from home. This talk celebrates 40 years of scientific discovery that continues today. You’ll learn about the design and engineering of the spacecraft, the discoveries it’s made, the challenges it’s overcome, and what the future holds for this far-flung emissary from Earth.
