about

It was realised that - because of an alignment of the outer planets which happens every 176 years - a spacecraft launched in the late 1970s would be able to visit each of the giant planets of the solar system. The Voyager programme sent two craft out to explore the outer planets in this way.

This piece tracks the journey of each of the Voyager probes in an (extremely scaled-down!) approximation of real time, from launch to Neptune, via Jupiter and Saturn
