Voyager 1, which has been travelling at the rate of 10km/sec to the outer limits of the solar system since 1977, is now detecting the first traces of 'interstellar winds' (colder and slower than solar winds) - the signs it is finally reaching the edges of solar system. It is now 17,970,000,000km - or 11,100,000,000miles away. by Eddie Wrenn, dailymail.co.uk #Space #Voyager_1 #Solar_System #Eddie_Wrenn #dailymail_co_uk
