THERE'S NO END TO SPACE 

The Civil Writer Magazine

It is Kind of astonishing that 70s space ships are 11.5 billion miles away from home and are still going possibly to never stop or hit the end of space.

The Voyager 2 probe was launched on August 20, 1977, by NASA from Space Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral, Florida, aboard a Titan IIIE/Centaur launch vehicle. Two weeks later, the twin Voyager 1 probe was launched on September 5, 1977. Voyager 2 is sister craft to Voyager 1. Both have been traveling through the solar system — and now beyond it — for the last four decades.

Earth has a circumference of 40,007.86 km or 24,859.73 miles. To travel 11.5 billion miles around the earth it would take 100s of millions of lapses around the earth. Together, they have transformed our understanding of our stellar neighborhood and are already revealing unprecedented information about the interstellar space beyond the Sun's sphere of influence. Our world never ends in Black space.
