Humanity is on the verge of becoming an interstellar civilization!

At the mind-blowing distance of 11 billion miles, the Voyager 1 spacecraft, launched in 1970’s, is about to leave the domain of the sun forever and enter interstellar space — a region between the stars!

This is a truly amazing milestone for all of humankind.
