Yup. Pretty incredible...but Pioneer is not the furthest reaching man-made object...Voyager is. It's going on 25+ years of service now...and still going. And it's brother, Voyager two, could match, or exceed that...

All in all, great evidence of Nasa's abilities...and Mankind.

The Voyager spacecraft will be the third and fourth human spacecraft to fly beyond all the planets in our solar system. Pioneers 10 and 11 preceded Voyager in outstripping the gravitational attraction of the Sun but on February 17, 1998, Voyager 1 passed Pioneer 10 to become the most distant human-made object in space.




WS you are right. But it is going for the longest time i think?
And to think dubya want to save money on the space program?
~shivers~

What i found amazing is that both the pioneers and the voyagers keep on going long after the original end of mision date. They are probably the first human made crafts who will (if ever) meet other life forms outside our solar system.
That just tickles my imagination

~dreams away from distant stars and planets~

Just as long as those organisms which finally find it don't mistake it for some sort of intergalactic menu card and drop in for lunch ....

If another life form did intercept it, it's still going to take them 30 years to get here .

InSiDeR - It would take 30 years with our technology. And besides... 30 years isn't that long... we'll all be alive still... Gods willing.

Not to mention if they simply decide to say 'Hi' before dropping by..

...and that's not 30 years with our technology, that's 30 yeas with 1970's tech... now we got that proton engine that can go faster..
