In other news, it's finally been confirmed that Voyager-1 did indeed leave the Solar System (or the influence of the Sun's magnetic field, anyway) around August 25th of last year--which means that now at about 12 billion miles or 17 light hours from Earth, it's cruising through the interstellar medium, the stuff between stars that has been theorized about but never directly measured (Voyager-1 has already measured a 100-fold increase in proton density out there vs inside the bubble created by our Sun)! Voyager-1 will have about 10 years to study interstellar space before its plutonium battery runs out.
