Where are the Voyagers?
Voyager 1 and 2 are now in the 'Heliosheath' - the outermost layer of the heliosphere where the solar wind is slowed by the pressure of interstellar gas.

THE VOYAGER MISSION
In August and September 1977, two spacecrafts were launched from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral in Florida. These spacecrafts were Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 which had both been sent on a journey to explore the Gas Giants and beyond. Today, over thirty years after launch, the two crafts are still active. They are now on their way out of the Solar System, getting close to reaching the point at which the Sun no longer has any influence.
