No, Not Star Trek: Voyager, the Real Ones

Here's a nice little article on the Voyager space probes, which have now been going strong for 25 years. I remember watching pictures of Neptune coming in live from the VLA the week after I started my freshman year at NMT; they had a screen set up in the main auditorium for it. Which was very cool, although it would have been even cooler if classes had started a week later, because I could have been in Pasadena for the Planetary Society's big "Planet Fest" bash in honor of the encounter. (Speaking of whom, there's a lot more information about the Voyagers at their website, if you're interested.)
