Voyager 1 and 2 30 years and going strong!

Happy birthday Voyager 2 (and soon Voyager 1)! Thirty years ago, Voyager 2 was launched into space to start what has been an incredibly successful 30 year mission… and that’s just so far. The long range sensor is still moving out from the solar system and broadcasting data. Imagine, a device with less computing power than a really cheap wristwatch and designed to last only 4 years has continued to broadcast valuable scientific data for three decades! That’s an darn impressive accomplishment. Here’s a hearty “well done” to those scientists and engineers who worked on the Voyager program those many decades ago.
