The space probe Voyager 2 National Agency on Aeronautics and research of space administration (NASA) last year came out in interstellar space, repeating the achievement of the spacecraft Voyager 1.
In the scientific journal Nature Astronomy this week published a series of articles devoted to the analysis of communications from the probe Voyager 2 since its release in interstellar space at a distance of 18 billion kilometers from Earth in November 2018.
They described the journey of Voyager 2, including its transition through heliopause (part of the Solar system that are exposed to particles and ions from deep space) and heliosis (the region of the heliosphere beyond the shock wave) to what is beyond the Solar system.
The spacecraft will continue to send back data about your trip. Both probe — Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 continue to perform measurements in the interstellar space during the flight, but as expected, the energy for their operation would last only for the next five years or so. No further missions into interstellar space now, NASA has no plans.
