Voyager 1 has left the building!!!!
For the first time in history, a man made object has left the solar system. NASA scientists have confirmed that Voyager 1 has left the heliosphere, which is the magnetic boundary between us and the aliens.
Voyager 1 has now been labeled a traitor to humanity, seeing as how it's going to lead the aliens right to us. Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum have both stated that they are more than ready to save us from the impending alien invasion. Bill Pullman is now beginning to ready his campaign for President, and is also beginning to write rough drafts of motivational speeches. Randy Quaid will now increase his level of alcoholism by an extra bottle of whiskey a day, hoping to one day redeem himself as a hero.
Scientists have stated that they did a bunch of sciencey stuff, similar to wizardry, to figure out that the space craft had indeed left the solar system. They mentioned something about plasma waves, which tells us that Voyager 1 may indeed be surfing and will one day become the Silver Surfer.
There was no mention, of whether or not Voyager 1 mooned the former planet Pluto, on the way out.
Voyager 2 will leave the solar system in about 3 or 4 years, at which point the two space craft will begin their real life, buddy comedy, wacky adventures of deep space together. Who knows what kind of shenanigans those two will get up to, but let's hope the Klingons are forgiving.
