You are invited to hear the story of the 33-year journey of NASA’s twin Voyager spacecraft to the edge of our solar system, where they are approximately 10 billion miles away from our sun. The Voyagers are currently exploring an uncharted region located far beyond the planets we now know….a region that forms the outer boundary of the solar bubble. In a few years, humanity’s farthest explorer will transition into the medium between stars—known as interstellar space.
