This is my model of the Voyager 2 spacecraft, the second of a pair, launched in 1977 that conducted a Grand Tour of the outer planets, including their surrounding moons and ring systems. Voyager 2 launched on August 20, 1977 while Voyager 1 launched a little later on September 5, 1977. Voyager 1 arrived at Jupiter and Saturn first before being flung out of the plane of the Solar System. Voyager 2 arrived afterwards and then went on to Uranus and Neptune. They are still sending back data from the edge of interstellar space.
