After 36 years and 7 days, human creation has finally left the cradle of our solar system. Could this be just the spark America and indeed, the nations of Earth need to jump-start our interest in joining together to accomplish a larger goal for ourselves, and maybe begin a new, 21st century space race, With well over a decade of life expectancy, the craft continues to operate healthy, and takes ten hours from Tx time to Rx time with the Deep Space Array. Now that we’re literally in uncharted waters… what will Voyager continue to teach us?
Sitting in my Asian Politics class at Eastern Michigan University, I read the news… and realized that this was a moment in our history analogous to Columbus discovering the new world… or Neil Armstrong landing on the moon.
Our creation is finally “out there.” Go, Starship Voyager.
