The spacecraft that didn't want to go home

Voyager 1 probe has just reached the edge of the solar system and is still flying to some unknown places. This probe was sent to space on septembre 2nd 1977, and it's still cruising out there. Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 was made originally to explore and study the farest planets of the solar system, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and their moons. They even discovered some more moons in Saturn's and Neptune's rings. Their primary goal finished, they were sent to discover more and more, farther and farther until they stop working.

Voyager 1 is now the farest human probe ever, and it's going to keep going until about year 2020. This probe doesn't want to go home. It still wants to travel far far away, checking on the amazing wonders of the space. It still want to cruise this new empty space, looking back at us and sending pictures and datas, saying hi from time to time to us.

It must sometimes feels alone in the dark cold space, but we are still and we'll always be amazed by what it can do.

Go on Voyager 1, amaze us more everytime, makes us dream!
