Hi everyone, I am Voyager 2. I belong to the family of space machines, to all effects I’m an unmanned spaceship.
Like the Argonauts and with the help of the stars, I have crossed most of the solar system, sailing for over 18 billion km. I have worked hard, sending you a lot of data. I have brushed against Jupiter and Saturn to get started and point towards Uranus and Neptune. Since last November, I have crossed the heliosphere, the solar system’s Pillars of Hercules, and roam in interstellar space after a long journey that began in 1977.
Now I rest contemplating the constellations of Orion, Scorpio and Capricorn, and all the other stars of the sky in this darkness of blinding light.
I miss the Earth, but I console myself with the indescribable spectacle of these stars: priceless company.
