Voyager Mission: The Journey Continues – Dr. Edward C. Stone

(June 22, 2007) From the “Evenings with Astronomers” series. Dr. Edward C. Stone, the David Morrisroe Professor of Physics at Caltech and one of the leading scientists of our time, has been the project scientist for the Voyager mission since 1972. As the two Voyager spacecraft flew by Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, they revealed a Solar System with worlds of unimagined diversity. The Voyagers are now exploring the Solar System’s final frontier, its outermost region called the heliosphere, which, like a bubble, envelops our Sun and all the planets.

Science Standards: Describe the nature of our solar system; discuss current scientific views about our solar system; describe how technology is being used to conduct scientific investigations.
