Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Bound for a Star with Firey Oceans Edition
I don’t know if you’ve heard, but, after a lot of speculation in recent months, mission scientists at NASA have officially declared that Voyager 1 has entered interstellar space.
This feels like a pretty momentous occasion. While the spacecraft has not yet left the solar system, Voyager 1 is the first spacecraft to bust through the heliopause, the region where the pressure from the solar wind is no longer expand against the pressure of external particles. Come on. This is a 1970s piece of machinery. My MacBook is five years old and barely functions. This whole achievement is damn impressive.
So in honor of humanity’s entrance into this new frontier, I present to you “2000 Light Years from Home” by the Rolling Stones. Even though in real life Voyager is only about 0.002 light years from home (someone please check my math), I bet it feels pretty lonely out there.
We’re still thinking of you, Voyager!
