Now Voyager [Voyager 1 и Voyager 2] are located in interstellar space, where every day they provide all of humanity with information about these uncharted territories. Thanks to these probes, we have the opportunity for the first time to follow the interactions of the Sun with interstellar magnetic fields and charged particles. Our measurements have already cast doubt on many theoriesVoyager deputy mission leader Linda Spilker said.

Voyager 2

The Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 probes were launched by NASA in 1977 to study the giant planets and the outskirts of the solar system. Over the next few decades, American interplanetary stations collected a huge amount of information about Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, and also discovered several new moons around these worlds.

To date, Voyager 1 remains the most distant spacecraft from Earth. He retired from our planet at a distance of 23.4 billion km, or 157.01 astronomical units, the average distances between our planet and the Sun. Voyager 1 officially left the heliosphere, the “bubble” of solar wind plasma surrounding the solar system, at the end of August 2012.

Firefly Aerospace, a private space company, successfully launched a rocket and put several mini-satellites into orbit.

The Alpha rocket is a lightweight rocket, meaning it can launch approximately 1.2 tons of payload. This is the second rocket launch, the first took place in September last year, but the rocket exploded after launch due to the failure of one of the engines. This time everything went smoothly. The mission itself is called Alpha Flight 2: To The Black.

At the same time, the launch was originally planned for the morning of September 30, but the rocket engines turned off almost immediately after they were launched – the automatic abort system worked. The reasons for this were not explained, the company only reported that such behavior was provided for by the security system.

Firefly Aerospace intends to take part of the small satellite launch market. Each launch is valued at $15 million. Thus, the company intends to compete with SpaceX, Rocket Lab, Virgin Orbit and Astra. Firefly Aerospace is a privately held aerospace company headquartered in Austin, Texas.
