How the journey of the Voyager spacecraft started with its visit to the Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune and is continuing. These Voyager spacecraft was the first spacecraft, which visited Uranus and Neptune and how from the Jupiter and Saturn this aircraft used the effect of the gravitational slingshot for increasing their speed (BABJAK, CROSBY, TING, LANKTON & TING, 1968).
