Voyager 1 is going to Star, Gliese 445

17.5 light years away.
At current speed, 38,000 mph, it will come within 1.7 light years of Gliese 445 in 42020.


Voyager 1 is broken at the moment and is transmitting gibberish back to Earth. NASA thinks part of the memory has been corrupted and are working on a solution.

The power supply probably has only has a year or two to go before it, and the spacecraft, dies anyway but what a triumph the craft has been for the last half century!

Safe travels.
