Further from home, but nearer the edge!

Some weeks ago, I blogged about the Voyager programme.

Today, BBC News reports that the Voyager I has reached a new milestone, and is nearer the edge of the solar system! It is so far away from home now that a radio message from the space probe takes 16 hours to reach Earth.

Here’s to many more years of exploration to come!
