Reaching the Rim of our Solar System
The twin spacecraft of Voyager 1 and 2 are already nearing the end of our solar system. They are now reaching the outer rim of our Heliosphere and many changes are being observed in terms of interstellar charge particles with the use of this two spacecraft.
As these two spacecraft continue on its journey outside the solar system they are experiencing a gradual shift in the amount of cosmic rays they are encountering. The 25% increase in cosmic ray exposure was observed from January 2009 to January 2012 alone and it continuously increases in rapid rate but the energy particles that is produced by the sun is still in abundant supply in the current location proving that these two spacecraft are still in the influence of our sun.
Voyager 1 and 2’s initial mission is to observe and study the two gas giant namely Saturn and Jupiter along with their many moons. But because of their effectiveness and reliability they were also able to observed both Uranus and Neptune. Current mission is to study and observe the outer rim of our solar system which they are performing with great result. These two spacecraft are the very first and the only man made equipment that were to able to reach the end of our solar system as to this date.
