The Voyager 1 probe was launched in 1977 and after nearly 35 years in space, and 11.1 billion miles from Earth, it is about to make history. A NASA space probe launched at the beginning of the Space Age, the Voyager 1 probe is about to make history by becoming the first manmade object to travel beyond our own solar system.
Yes, you read that right. 35 years in space, in the harsh environment that is space, and it is still working!
I personally think it's amazing that something built in 1977 can go into space and keep on working for 35 years. The batteries of an iPhone nowadays barely work for 1 year and this thing built in 1977 (with inferior technology) is still working! They sure don’t make them like they used to.
