A never-ending voyage

It was 1977 when NASA launched two Voyager spacecraft. Now, forty years later, they are still travelling.

Voyager 1 and 2 departed within two weeks of each other – at the end of August and start of September – from Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA. The mission was divided – Voyager 1 flew by Jupiter and Saturn, while the second was to visit Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

They also took with them a ‘golden record’ of messages, sounds and pictures of humanity, such as the calls of humpback whales and a collection of languages. This record could survive for billions of years.

Little did scientists know back then that come 2017, Voyager 1 and 2 would remain active, sending data back for analysis. ‘None of us knew, when we launched 40 years ago, that anything would still be working, and continuing on this pioneering journey,’ Voyager project scientist Ed Stone said.

In a statement, Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA, spoke of how the spacecraft had ‘educated us to the unknown wonders of the universe and truly inspired humanity to continue to explore our solar system and beyond’.

According to Space.com, Voyager 1 is nearly 13 billion miles from Earth, while its twin is about 11 billion miles away. Their next encounter with a cosmic object will take place in approximately 40,000 years.

So, those who know me well know that I love learning. I especially love the space race of the 50s and 60s. Most of my heroes are astronauts, from all over the world, but every now and then, I’ll rediscover someone from behind the scenes. This last while, it’s been Gene Kranz, who was instrumental on getting the crew of Apollo 13 home. He was a flight director on a lot of NASA’s missions and one of the unique quirks about him was his wife used to make him hand made vests. His vest from Apollo 13 was white and now sits art the Smithsonian Museum. My favourite vest of his was the one he wore for Apollo 17…

There's someone in the house

will-you-sleep-tonight submitted: 

  A bit of background before I start: I live in California, and I used to live in this pretty old house in Mission Hills up until I turned 13. We had to move suddenly because my uncle, who owned the property, was going to sell it. It was only after we moved that my family that lived there with me(it was a pretty big house) started revealing weird experiences that they had had there. Even though all the experiences were different, they all related back to the same thing: A tall dark figure that they would see either inside of the house, or outside in the backyard.

It’s been years, I’m currently 17. But last year, me and my mom were driving around that area, and I asked her if she wanted to see our old house, just drive by there. So we went and parked in front and y'know, started having a bit of nostalgia. Our old next door neighbor saw us, and we were surprised that they still lived there, so we started talking to them. The girl I was friends with told me she was babysitting for a pair of twin boys that lived in the house now, about 5 and 6 yr olds. 

Out of curiosity, I asked her if she had ever seen anything strange there. She said no, then thought about it and told me the only weird thing that had ever happened was one night the boys were convinced there was someone in the backyard. When they were put to bed, they told her that they saw a man looking in at them from the window. I literally got chills for one of two reasons; 1. The way it was described, it was exactly what my family had seen and 2. I knew exactly what room she was talking about, because my aunt had experienced the same thing for years before she moved out. 

She continued in telling me that this freaked her out, so she looked outside(from the windows) and saw nothing. When she came back into their room, they were laughing hysterically saying “You didn’t catch him, the shadow man’s in the house now!” She was terrified thinking it was a break in, so she locked herself in the room with them and called the police. The police found no trace of a man in there, and nothing was stolen. She asked me, jokingly, if I was curious about ghosts, and I told her very seriously that she needed to talk to their parents and get those boys out of that room. My aunt would wake up with huge bruises, as if she were getting beat at night, because of that room. It wasn’t the mattress or any sleeping habits, because ever since, she has not gotten a single bruise.

Last time we checked, the house was put up for sale again.
