Celebrate NASA's Voyager Spacecraft With this Stunning Animated Tribute
With the exploits of spacecraft like Rosetta and the exciting prospect of Juno reaching Jupiter next week, we're currently at a very exciting moment in space exploration. With every day that passes, a new groundbreaking discovery seems to be made, but it's not just these relative new kids on the block that are delivering the goods. Currently carving paths that have never been trodden by a man-made object before, the two Voyager spacecraft are still in operation almost 40 years after they were first launched.

Launched in 1977, the Voyager program has seen its two spacecraft visit Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and much more on their way to becoming the first man-made objects ever to leave our solar system. Remarkably, after all these years and millions of miles traveled, these two spacecraft are still delivering findings. To celebrate these remarkable achievements, Santiago Menghini has created a stunning video tribute to the two Voyager spacecraft.

Titled 'Voyagers', the video below blends real photography and plasma frequencies received by Voyagers 1 and 2 to create an experience that feels about as close to flying through space as you could ever hope to feel from the comfort of your own home.
