Voyager 1
February 17, 1998


Artist's concept of Voyager's travel distance


Voyager 1 becomes the most distant human-made object in space.

As of 2002, it is more than twice as far from the Sun as Pluto. It continues sending back data regularly as it heads out of our solar system on a mission to study interstellar space.
