Voyager 1 spacecraft's biggest moments are shown in this chart covering the last 36 years. Voyager 1 is almost 12 billion miles away now! and moving at miles per hour!Voyager 1 will be the first ever object we've sent outside our solar system.
The unmanned Voyager 1 and 2 probes were launched in 1977 on a mission to visit all the outer planets of the solar system. After 35 years in space, the twin probes are approaching the edge of our solar system.
The Solar System consists of the Sun and the astronomical objects gravitationally bound in orbit around it, all of which formed from the collapse of a giant molecular cloud approximately billion years ago. of the system’s mass is in the Sun.
Other than a handful of deep sky objects (galaxies, nebulas, star clusters) that can be seen w/ the naked eye, this statement is basically correct. The stars we can see do generally fit inside that circle.
