Where no man has gone before

After analyzing data sent from Voyager 1, a spacecraft that was sent into space 34 years ago, scientists have concluded that Voyager 1 is on the edge of our solar system. Voyager 1 is the farthest object that man has sent from Earth, and it will be the first man-made object to leave our solar system. It is now 11.1 billion miles (17.8 billion kilometers) from Earth. A signal from Voyager 1 takes 16 hours 38 minutes to reach one of the antennas here on Earth. Here is a video.
