Voyager I is now 11 billion miles from the sun and at the end of our solar system.  NASA calls the area cosmic purgatory.

For the past year using the several instruments at its disposal Voyager I shows no solar wind is going either way.  The stagnation area is where our solar system’s magnetic field has piled up and is slowly leaking into interstellar space.

Soon Voyager I will truly be in interstellar space and will be sending new and unseen information about this distant area of space.  Many of Voyager I and II’s experiments are expected to be operating through 2020.

Voyager I was launched in 1977 and slowly reaching her destination.
