This is awesome.
I mean, I’m a sucker for the space programme anyway, and I’d weep with joy if I ever watched mankind walking on Mars. But the idea that humanity is going interstellar is awe-inspiring, especially when you consider the vast distances involved, and once it leaves the heliosphere, well, we actually leave our backyard for the first time. Sure, we’ve got a good idea of what’s out there, from observations and calculations, but it’s not the same as actually having something out there, giving us a physical presence in the depths of space.
Vaya con Dios, Voyager.
