Video also discussed about the long journey of the Voyager spacecraft from the year 1977 till date. 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).

Core Concepts of the Science:

The core concepts of the Voyager indicated that voyager1 is the first officially human made spacecraft, which is to start its journey in the interstellar space in the 1977 summers from the Cape Canaveral, Florida. These Space air-crafts were such designed to do the close-up studies of the Jupiter, Saturn, Saturn Rings and the larger moons of the two planets.
