Has Voyager 1 Spacecraft left Solar System or Not?

In March of this year NASA issued a report saying that reports about Voyager 1 having left our solar system are not valid. Edward Stone, Voyager project scientist based at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, Calif said back then: "It is the consensus of the Voyager science team that Voyager 1 has not yet left the solar system or reached interstellar space. In December 2012, the Voyager science team reported that Voyager 1 is within a new region called 'the magnetic highway' where energetic particles changed dramatically. A change in the direction of the magnetic field is the last critical indicator of reaching interstellar space and that change of direction has not yet been observed."

Now a new report from scientists claims again that Voyager 1 already left the solar system last year according to Space.com. As the Voyager cannot phone home the dispute will go on for a while.

You can read up on the Voyager mission on the NASA site.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
