Above and Beyond What was Asked:
NASA: The Voyager probes were designed to visit Jupiter and Saturn.
The Voyager mission included two probes — Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 — which NASA launched in 1977 within a few months of each other.
The launches capitalized on a rare alignment of planets that allowed them to turbocharge their journeys into space.
NASA originally built the probes to last five years, but have exceeded that lifespan many times.
Brandon Specktor: Collapsed Arecibo telescope offers near-Earth asteroid warning from beyond the grave
After collapsing into pieces in December 2020, the mighty Arecibo Observatory has a final parting gift for humanity — and it’s a doozy.
Using data collected by Arecibo between December 2017 and December 2019, scientists have released the largest radar-based report on near-Earth asteroids ever published. The report, published Sept. 22 in The Planetary Science Journal, includes detailed observations of 191 near-Earth asteroids, including nearly 70 that are deemed “potentially hazardous” — that is, large asteroids with orbits that bring them within 4.65 million miles (7.5 million kilometers) of Earth, or roughly 20 times the average distance between Earth and the moon…
