Voyager Space Probe Survives From the Age of Disco

The NASA Voyager space probes were launched in 1977, the Age of Disco. They’ve been staying alive for 40 years, and are now 13 billion miles from Earth, traveling through deep interstellar space. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is celebrating the anniversary with free commemorative posters.

See the  Voyager film, The Farthest, on PBS.

Those Pesky Space Aliens

Those Pesky Space Aliens

Space aliens could be a right pain, says Professor Stephen Hawking, so if you run across some leave them be. The famed astrophysicist made his remarks in a recent television program (he’s British and thinks it’s a “programme”).

Dr. Hawking belives that space aliens are probably out there. If they come here, he reasons, they will be Columbus and we’ll be Carib and Arawak indians. Seen many Caribs or Arawaks lately? Right. That’s his point.
