NASA's two venerable Voyager spacecraft are celebrating three decades of flight as they head toward interstellar space. Their ongoing odysseys mark an unprecedented and historic accomplishment.

Voyager 2 launched August 20, 1977, and Voyager 1 launched September 5, 1977. They continue to return information from distances more than three times farther away than Pluto.

In this week's show, Voyager project manager Ed Massey talks about the spacecraft.
