Remember the pro gay marriage ad we posted a couple of days ago, the one with the gay dudes threatening to marry everyone else’s girlfriends? Well, here’s part two, which personally I find awesome. Who wouldn’t want a girlfriend like these gals?
The Voyager 1 space probe (launched by NASA in 1977 to study the outer Solar System and interstellar medium) has reached a new region at the edge of the solar system called the “magnetic highway”, a previously unknown region of the heliosphere.
Scientists think this is the final region before the space probe enters interstellar space (the space between solar systems). Voyager 1 will then become the first man-made object to exit our solar system.
Voyager project scientist Edward Stone:
“Our best guess is it’s likely just a few months to a couple years away. The new region isn’t what we expected, but we’ve come to expect the unexpected from Voyager.”
Voyager 1 is predicted to enter interstellar sometime between 2012 – 2015.
