    The plot of the first Star Trek movie was based around the Voyager spacecraft. Let's just say it comes home and it's not happy.

    I was reading about this in the latest issue of Astronomy Magazine. They were talking about the Voyager possibly reaching the Oort Cloud, and approximately how long it might take, etc etc etc...was great to read about!

    For 34 years this little probe has been speeding through the solar system at a high rate, and it is just now getting ready to exit. And to think the solar system is just a speck in our galaxy, and our galaxy just a speck in the universe.
