Voyager 1 Hot Off The Presses
Hey, Tumblrverse! We really liked how this virtual vintage-style poster turned out—so we decided to make it real. We’re reposting it now after printing up a limited run so space explorers could keep an eye on the cosmos from the comfort of their couches and office chairs.
Hit us up with some fan mail if you want one to spruce up your walls.
The fine print: Tumblr says you must be 18 or over and a resident of the U.S. for us to send you this poster. You do not, however, need to have already been accepted into astronaut training or to own your own telescope. We’ve printed only a limited number, so first come, first served. And Tumblr doesn’t have anything to do with this Voyager poster. The folks there didn’t administer, sponsor or endorse it. But we bet they wish they did.[[MORE]]

Voyager 1-Envoy to the Stars
What a long, strange trip it’s been. On Sept. 5,1977, the unmanned probe Voyager 1 hitched a ride into space aboard a Titan-Centaur rocket launched from Cape Canaveral, Fla. Its mission: to explore the remote gas planets Jupiter and Saturn. While there, it was to survey the two worlds’ moons and Saturn’s beautiful, mysterious rings. 
Powered with a radioisotope thermoelectric generator (RTG) heart designed and built by GE, the little probe arrived at Jupiter in 1979 and Saturn in 1980. The RTG converts heat produced by the plutonium’s radioactive decay into electricity to provide power to voyager’s instruments, computers, radio and other systems.
NASA expected the spacecraft to continue operating for five years and travel 10 astronomical units. It has now been sending data about its environment continuously for more than 36 years, traveling about 126 astronomical units in that time.
