.You are measuring from a moving platform: Earth! Here’s a graph of distances from 1992-2018. The wiggles? Earth’s orbital motion!

Es verdad que el periodo de rotación de esta parte d nuestra galaxia es d ~250,000 años, pero la serie de interacciones entre todas las estrellas es tan caótico que infelizmente es muy improbable que yo me encuentre en la vecindad del sistema solar en el futuro. Nos despedimos!

Those are the Pioneer 10 & 11 plaques. The Voyager discs do not have the nude figures because of the uproar they caused in the USA.

This is a fantastic documentary. Really highlights the achievements of all the scientists and engineers who made the incredible Voyager Mission and V2's Grand Tour a reality. Highly recommended!

After the Sun is just a big red giant and Earth is no more, Voyagers 1 and 2 will still be carrying Chuck Berry's "Johnny Be Good" into interstellar space.

OTD in 1990, sister V1 took the 'Valentine's Day Portrait' of our solar system & then turned off her wide- & narrow-field cameras. I had turned mine off in October and December of 1989, respectively. There was nothing else to image, & the heaters consumed too much power.

The 'Pale Blue Dot: That's Home. That's Us.' , one of the Valentine's Day Portraits () that sister V1 captured 29 years ago! From 4 billion miles, Earth was a crescent only 0.12 pixels wide, far too small for our cameras to resolve.
