Voyager 1 is Out of Our Solar System’s Bounds

NASA's Voyager 1 is the first man-made object to leave the bounds of our solar system. Launched for the first time on its journey through space in 1977, it has currently gone outside the ambit of our solar system.

Voyager 1 is Out of Our Solar System’s Bounds

Voyager 1 is Out of Our Solar System’s Bounds

To imagine that human beings have sent a probe into outer space that has penetrated regions that have never before been gone into by such objects. Such is the case of the Voyager 1 . Previously, scientists at NASA thought the space probe was still within the parameters of the helio-sphere. But now they are not so sure. 

Although, the team of experts at NASA has been vacillating for some time now in making a decision, recent discoveries point in the direction of the leave-taking of the Voyager 1 from the solar system. In fact, it may have left our planetary system as long ago as August of 2012. 

Now the consensus on the matter is final though. Using the scientific method termed “Occam’s Razor”, the simple and most obvious explanation wins in the end. The probe allowed scientists to examine close-up shots of Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune. This was a miracle of modern astrophysics. 

Now, the distance between Voyager 1 and the earth is so large that at least 17 hours elapse before a radio signal comes back from the space exploration module. This is the first time that an object created by mankind has made it so far into the depths of space. The new discoveries that this space probe will gather and send back to our tiny blue planet will be like none of the erstwhile secrets of astronomy exposed before the mind of man. And what to say of its sister probe, Voyager 2, which still lies within the sun’s gravitational field.
