Voyager location

Voyager 1's location.

Voyager 1 is an 815-kilogram unmanned probe of the outer solar system and beyond, launched September 5, 1977, and currently operational. It visited Jupiter and Saturn and was the first probe to provide detailed images of the moons of these planets.

Voyager 1 is the farthest human-made object from Earth, traveling 5 times faster then a bullet, faster than any other probe, except for New Horizons, which was launched January 2006. Voyager 1 will remain as the farthest probe until the year 2070, barring a faster probe launched in the interim overtaking it.
