Although the rings of Saturn may look like a permanent fixture of the planet, they are ever-changing. New analyses of the rings reveal how and when they were made, from what and whether they’ll last.
Both Voyagers are now in interstellar space.
Voyager 2 launched in 1977 and visited all four gas giants in our Solar System. It’s now almost 18 billion kilometres from Earth and has finally joined its twin in interstellar space.
Both Voyager spacecraft are only in communication with Earth via a Canberra tracking station.
The Voyager space probes sent back some amazing images of the planets in the outer Solar System, and they’re still talking to Earth every day via Australia’s tracking station.

Humanity is the real target for these recordings which continue to inspire us to better understand ourselves and our place in the cosmos.
We got you, Pluto!
In the long lead-up to our ultimate flyby of Pluto, space science has reconfigured our notions of what it means to be a solar system, a planet, a world.
Pale Blue Dot – Earth, imaged by Voyager 1 from 6 billion kilometres away.
From a big blue marble to a tiny dot in space – reflections on our images of Earth.
Two golden records, on their way out of our solar system, carry Australian Aboriginal music – but what’s the real story behind the recording?

Earlier this year, NASA spacecraft Voyager 1 left our solar system after a 35-year journey, carrying with it a golden record containing sounds, images and music from Earth. Its sister craft, Voyager 2…
It’s been decades since our last foray outside Earth’s orbit - but what’s next for humankind?
The United Nations’ Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space is meeting in Vienna this week, and representatives of 74 countries will discuss, among other things, how to ensure space is maintained…
Voyager 1 has come across an unexpected region of the solar system - a “magnetic superhighway”.
At 18.5 billion kilometres from Earth, the Voyager 1 space probe is the most distant human-made object ever to leave our planet. And now the spacecraft, which was launched in September 1977, has discovered…
It’s not everyday you get to chat with a spacecraft that’s nearing the edge of the solar system.
Interviewing a spacecraft isn’t something one does every day. It certainly wasn’t an option back in the late 1970s, when Voyager 1 and 2 set off on a mission like no other before or since: to visit some…
