Voyager Mission

The Voyager mission was officially approved in May 1972, has received the dedicated efforts of many skilled personnel for over two decades, and has returned more new knowledge about the outer planets than had existed in all of the preceding history of astronomy and planetary science. And the two Voyager machines are still performing like champs.

It must come as no surprise that there are many remarkable, "gee-whiz" facts associated with the various aspects of the Voyager mission. These tidbits have been summarized below in appropriate categories. Several may seem difficult to believe, but they are all true and accurate.
