Voyager 1 has reached interstellar space


"The confirmation that the craft had reached interstellar space was announced this week, thanks to some additional data from a third CME shock Voyager 1 observed in March of this year. By reaching interstellar space, it essentially means the craft has made it into the massive, empty expanse that exists between solar systems."

Launched 37 years ago and not just still functioning, but communicating with Earth despite having traveled more than 11 BILLION miles. Voyager 1 stands as one of the greatest engineering feats in human history and the bar gets raised every mile it travels.

I wonder if we'll ever be able to build a spacecraft fast enough to fly out, pick it up, and bring it home.
