The Voyagers: Reaching for the Stars

A Voyager spacecraft is shown in silhouette against a background of infinite stars.
The twin Voyager spacecraft, which launched in 1977, are our ambassadors to the rest of the Milky Way, destined to continue orbiting the center
of our galaxy for billions of years after they stop communicating with Earth. On Aug. 25, 2012, Voyager 1 became the first human-made object to
enter interstellar space. At age 40, the Voyagers were the farthest and longest-operating spacecraft and still have plenty more to discover. This poster captures the spirit of exploration, the vastness of spacend the wonder that has fueled this ambitious journey to the outer planets and beyond.

The Voyagers Rock On

This Voyager poster is made to look like a 1970s poster. It says Voyager: Since '77. The hits just keep on coming. Io Volcanoes. Titan Atmosphere. Triton Geysers. Pale Blue Dot. Interstellar Space.
Thanks to the twin Voyager spacecraft, music is truly universal: Each carries a Golden Record with sights, sounds and songs from Earth as it sails on through the Milky Way. Recalling the classic rock era of the late 1970s when the Voyagers launched, this poster is an homage to the mission's greatest hits. Some of the most extraordinary discoveries of the probes' first 40 years include the volcanoes on Jupiter's moon Io, the hazy nitrogen atmosphere of Saturn’s moon Titan and the cold geysers on Neptune's moon Triton. Voyager 1 is also the first spacecraft to deliver a portrait of our planets from beyond Neptune, depicting Earth as a 'pale blue dot,' and, as of Aug. 25, 2012, to enter interstellar space. Voyager 2 is expected to enter interstellar space in the coming years. Even after 40 years, the Voyagers’ hits just keep on coming.

The Grand Tour

A fleet of spacecraft zoom across Jupiter and Saturn is this futuristic take on racing posters.
NASA's Voyager mission took advantage of a once-every-175-year alignment of the outer planets for a grand tour of the solar system. The twin spacecraft revealed details about Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune – using each planet's gravity to send them on to the next destination. Voyager set the stage for such ambitious orbiter missions as Galileo to Jupiter and Cassini to Saturn. Today both Voyager spacecraft continue to return valuable science from the far reaches of our solar system.
