The Voyager space launch in 1977 is one of humankind`s greatest achievements.

More than twelve billion miles away, a tiny spaceship is leaving our Solar System and entering the void of deep space the first human-made object ever to do so. Slowly dying within its heart is a nuclear generator that will beat for perhaps another decade before the lights on Voyager finally go out.

But this little craft will travel on for millions of years, carrying a Golden Record bearing recordings and images of life on Earth. In all likelihood Voyager will outlive humanity.

Soon, the scientists tell us, Voyager’s lithium batteries will die, and all that will remain is the golden record message it carries as it burrows on into deep space, maybe forever.

This spacecraft could eventually become all that’s left of the human race. Reynolds’ alignment of the planets is somehow restful, however; a voice to remind us of what we could and still can do, and of our proper place in the firmament.
