Across the universe: The Voyager show
Across the universe: The Voyager show is a 30-min show for planetariums and digital dome theatres. Info, trailer & full preview available.
Cape Canaveral, August 20, 1977. One of humanity’s most daring missions of space age takes it’s beginning. Appreciating this truly unique moment the deep space probe Voyager II is sent into space on a Titan-3E-Centaur carrier rocket. 16 days later NASA sends the twin space telescope Voyager I in pursuit. Both space telescopes have one task: to explore the outer gas planets of our solar system.
Only by using the “Swing-by” or “Sling-shot” methods, based on the constellation of the planets at that time, the engineers managed to bring the Voyager space telescopes onto their course – this constellation only reoccurs every 176 years and not before the year 2153 another such mission would be possible.In 2009, more than 30 years later, both space telescopes already have covered a distance of 100 AE (15 billion km) and still are sending unique data to the earth.
Innumerable photos are still the only picture material of both planets Uranus and Neptune as well as their moons. The knowledge gained from this Voyager mission has influenced greatly and even facilitated any other space mission.
This voyage is still going on and after 30 years of flight Voyager I is the object furthest away from the earth created by humans.
