Voyagers the first left the Solar system


Devices had to work about five years. But already almost half a century transfer invaluable data to Earth. The office of NASA the Voyager-2 left borders of the Solar system and left in interstellar space. Now it is at distance about 120 astronomical units from Earth. It became the second man-made object which left the Solar system. His twin brother the Voyager-1 was the first. Scientists hope that they will bring benefit to science at least ten more years. The correspondent.net tells details. Voyagers, the main achievements the longest scientific mission in the history started more than 40 years ago when two interplanetary stations NASA - the Voyager 1 and 2 went to study space. Devices weigh 723 kilograms everyone. The voyager-2 was started the first - on August 20, 1977. It remains the only device which visited vicinities of all four gas giant planets to the Solar system - Jupiter, Saturn, Uranium and the Neptune. At the same time near Uranium and the Neptune still was not other probes. On September 5, 1977 NASA started the station voyadzher-1. Initially the station intended for a research of Jupiter and Saturn. It became the first device which made detailed pictures of satellites of these planets. Exactly thanks to pictures of the Voyager scientists learned that the Big red spot of Jupiter is a huge hurricane. Small Sun. Why Jupiter is so beautiful In 2012 the Voyager-1 the first in the history went out of the Solar system. In 40 years of flight the device moved away from Earth almost on 20 billion kilometers and became the most distant artificial object. Way to the Planet of X. The goblin on the edge of the Solar system the Second time in the history of mankind the man-made device got on interstellar Wednesday November 5. The Voyager-2 was it. The external border of a heliosphere called by a heliopause is where the rarefied solar wind meets the cold, dense interstellar environment. Now the Voyager-2 is in the 18th billion kilometers from Earth. Signals reach it with delay for 16.5 hours. Information from the first Voyager goes more than 19 hours. And this time grows all the time. Opened Earth 2.0. The mission of Kepler comes to the end Scientists of NASA noted that the natures of crossing of a heliopause differ in Voyagers. In a case with the second probe, it looked as sharp falling at rates of registration of particles of solar wind and the corresponding increase in fixing of particles of galactic space particles. This results from the fact that they quitted from the Solar system to different places: one in a northern hemisphere, another - in southern. Also the difference in a solar cycle affected them. "Both devices in great health if to speak about them as people at respectable age. They function just perfectly", - say in a mission. Spacecrafts are supplied with the electric power at the expense of radio isotope thermoelectric generators and gradually lose power in process of disintegration of the available plutonium reserves.
