In 1977 two spacecraft, Voyager I & II, began the longest journey ever undertaken by a craft forged by human hands. The two spacecraft forever changed how humanity views the Solar System and our place within it. New worlds were explored, new knowledge was gained, and the voyage isn't over yet. The two space craft continue their journey, transmitting new information from the edge of the Solar System.
