"Voyager: The Never Ending Journey" - In 1977 two space probes were launched to explore the farthest planets of the Solar System: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune along with their moons. These spacecraft greatly enriched our knowledge of the distant worlds. Now, after four decades, they explore interstellar space like two bottles launched into a cosmic ocean, carrying "The Golden Record" an interstellar message intended for any alien civilization.
