NASA confirmed Thursday that after 36 years of space travel and months of heated debate among scientists, Voyager 1 has indeed left our solar system and had entered interstellar space more than a year ago. The data shows conclusively that Voyager 1 has exited the heliopause — the bubble of hot, energetic particles that surrounds our sun and planets — and has entered into a region of cold, dark space called the interstellar medium. AWESOME!!!
Incredible and inspiring!! Tonight I'm going to watch 'STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE' (Director's Cut). Don't let the geeky nerd reference fool you, this amazing news brought a tear to my eye.
