Celebrate good times, come on! My project scientist, Ed Stone, is being honored with the prestigious Shaw Prize in Astronomy for his mission leadership since 1972. We've been together from before launch, past the planets and into interstellar space.

Just like I carry the Golden Record with sounds and images from Earth, 's next rover, , will carry chips bearing names to the surface of the Red Planet. Click here to send your name to Mars:

You can also download the sound of interstellar space along with lots of other space sounds directly from this audio page.

Back in 1977, the mission team at —including then project manager John Casani— decided that “Mariner Jupiter Saturn 1977” was quite a mouthful. They came up with the new name.

Much like the fictional Enterprise in Star Trek, the Voyagers are literally going where no one has gone before. Crossing out of our solar bubble and into the interstellar medium is giving us first-hand data on this never-before-explored region in space.

VGR 1 is expected to keep its current suite of science instruments on through 2021; VGR 2 through 2020. We expect each continue operating at least one science instrument until around 2025. Engineering data could continue to be returned for several more years.

NASA is exploring concept missions that might explore Uranus and Neptune, but right now, there are not plans in the works for another Grand Tour. Orbiting missions allow you to go more in depth than flybys. Keep an eye on , who will explore this icy moon of Jupiter.

I'm going about 35,000 mph relative to the Sun. This hypothetical future mission would have to travel far faster to catch up. Velocity would largely depend on the launch vehicle and any planetary flybys. Jupiter gravity assists really give you the most bang for your buck!

We have about 60kg of fuel remaining aboard each craft, which will outlast our RTG power sources.

My course and that of Voyager 2 was set by our last flybys. For me, it was Saturn. For V2, it was Neptune. Even after we fall silent, we'll still be ambassadors for Earth traveling through the Milky Way.

In 40,000 years, Voyager 2 will come within 1.7 lightyears of a star called Ross-248, which is part of the Andromeda constellation.

What a long, strange trip it's been. What started as a grand tour of the planets has become an interstellar voyage. My project manager will take questions on Wednesday's Science Live. What would you like to know? Noon PT, 3pm ET, 1900 UTC

It's a marvelous day for a moondance. in 1979, I flew past and got this shot of the planet and three of its largest moons.
