Voyager 1

The Voyager 1 spacecraft is a 722-kilogram (1,592 lb) space probe launched by NASA in 1977, to study the outer Solar System and eventually interstellar space. Operating for 34 years, 2 months and 20 days as of today (25 November 2011), the spacecraft receives routine commands and transmits data back to the Deep Space Network. At a distance of 119 astronomical units (1.78×1010 km) as of October 2011, it is the farthest man-made object from Earth. Voyager 1 is now in the heliosheath, which is the outermost layer of the heliosphere. It will most likely be the first probe to leave the Solar System.
