NASA Invites Public to Journey Toward Interstellar Space

NASA will hold a special NASA Science Update at 10 a.m. PDT (1 p.m. EDT) on Thursday, April 28, to discuss the unprecedented journey of NASA’s twin Voyager spacecraft to the edge of our solar system.

The event will be held at NASA Headquarters in Washington and will be broadcast live on NASA Television and streamed at http://www.nasa.gov . In addition, the event will be carried live on Ustream, with a live chat box available, at http://www.ustream.tv/nasajpl2 .

After 33 years in space, the spacecraft are still operating and returning data from about 16 billion kilometers (10 billion miles) away from our sun. The Voyagers also carry a collection of images and sounds from Earth as a message to possible life elsewhere in the galaxy.

The participants are:
— Ed Stone, Voyager project scientist and professor of physics, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, Calif.
— Ann Druyan, creative director, Voyager Interstellar Message Project; Carl Sagan’s co-author and widow
— Suzanne Dodd, Voyager project manager, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.
— Merav Opher, Voyager guest investigator and assistant professor of astronomy, Boston University
