We're scientists and engineers on NASA's Voyager mission. Our spacecraft is now in interstellar space. Ask Us Anything!
Edit 2 Wow, a lot more questions have come in since the team left for the evening. We'll do our best to catch up on some of those tomorrow. There are a lot of duplicate questions, so if you read through our responses from earlier you might come across an answer to your question. And thanks again for all the congrats -- it means so much to the team.
Edit 1 Hey everyone, we had a blast answering your questions and we appreciate the congratulations. We're off to celebrate Voyager 1's new place in interstellar space. We'll be looking at your questions the next couple of days and posting answers as time allows. Thank you all again for joining us.
