Great reading: what's the status of the 1970s Voyager space probes? What are they doing now, where are they, and who is minding them? #NASA #JPL
In 1977, Voyager 1 and 2 started their one-way journey across our galaxy, travelling a million miles a day. Jonathan Margolis meets the dedicated team keeping the craft moving
