Storyline

Is it humankind's greatest achievement? 12 billion miles away a tiny spaceship is leaving our Solar System and entering the void of deep space. It is the first human-made object ever to do so. Slowly dying within its heart is a plutonium generator that will beat for perhaps another decade before the lights on Voyager finally go out. But this little craft will travel on for millions of years, carrying a Golden Record bearing recordings and images of life on Earth. In all likelihood Voyager will outlive humanity and all our creations. It could be the only thing to mark our existence. Perhaps some day an alien will find it and wonder. The story of Voyager is an epic of human achievement, personal drama and almost miraculous success. Launched 16 days apart in Autumn 1977, the twin Voyager space probes have defied all the odds, survived countless near misses and almost 40 years later continue to beam revolutionary information across unimaginable distances.

The technology in 1977 was amazingly primitive to what we have today and yet the brilliant scientists at NASA got a spaceship outside of our solar system? And who's to say Voyager 2 won't do the same?

If the two crafts hadn't launched when they did then we wouldn't have seen two of these planets until around 2150. Sobering thought.

I really do think that, if we hadn't done this, then there would have been no New Horizons visiting Pluto or most of the Mars missions.

We're lucky that Nixon had a limited vision for giving the go-ahead for this mission back in 1972 and Jimmy Carter for starting the process with the moon landing back in 1969.

This documentary is a fascinating insight into the 12 year mission plan to get from launch to leaving Neptune's orbit. If you're a space junkie like me then you have to watch this.
