Voyager-1 officially pronounced first human-made object that reached interstellar space

It's finally official, Voyager 1 spacecraft is now in the interstellar space. The 36-year-old probe is now about 19 billion kilometers (12 billion miles) from our Sun traveling at a speed of about 61 155 km/h (38 000 mph). New and unexpected

NASA's Voyager 1 enters new region of deep space - magnetic highway

NASA scientists have announced entry of Voyager 1 in a new region in deep space, which they're calling a magnetic highway for charged particles; presumably the last leg of Voyager mission's journey. In this region, magnetic field lines of sun are found connected to
