So today, the first man-made object passed from our solar system and into interstellar space.
Voyager I made the transition (finally) and is now the furthest humanity has ever been from earth. It probably didn’t stop just before Pluto to mark the occasion in a Samwise Gamgee-esque moment, nor is it likely that it turned and flipped us the bird on the way out, but it’s funny to think about it.
There’s lots of talk about how this is gonna come back to bite us in the ass in 200 years when V’Ger comes back to meet its maker- but we believe that William Shatner will still be around to save our collective bacon.
