UofT Planetarium: Voyager’s Odyssey: A Small Probe’s Adventures into Interstellar Space

Friday, April 21, 2017 -
7:00pm to 10:00pm

Showtimes: 7:00pm, 8:00pm, and 9:00pm

In 1977 two small probes, Voyager 1 and 2, were launched from Earth with a mission to study the outer solar system. Both spacecraft visited Jupiter and Saturn, and Voyager 2 passed by Uranus and Neptune, returning images to Earth which allowed us to make surprising discoveries about these distant planets. Now these probes are entering interstellar space, making them the furthest man-made objects from the Earth!
